Learn the Maintenance Schedule for Your Honda!
When you first bring a new vehicle home from one of our Central Illinois Honda Dealers, protecting the value of your investment can seem like a daunting task! However, all you really have to do to keep your vehicle in great condition is stay up to date with your regularly scheduled maintenance and repairs. With a little help from the guide that follows, you’ll have little trouble staying on top of your vehicle’s necessary upkeep, and that means your time on the road will be better spent!
- Inspect suspension components.
- Inspect driveshaft boots.
- Inspect brake hoses and lines.
- Replace engine oil filter.
- Inspect front and rear brakes.
- Check parking brake adjustment.
- Inspect tie rod ends, steering gear box, and boots.
- Inspect exhaust system.
- Inspect fuel lines and connections.
- Check all fluid levels and condition of fluids; check for leaks.
- Inspect cooling system hoses and connections.
Some repairs aren’t listed under categories A, B, or C, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less essential than those recorded above. Each of the maintenance activities we’ll mention here should be performed at specific points in your vehicle’s lifespan. Drivers should check their cold engine valve clearance after two years and replace their coolant and brake fluid after three. After a total of five years on the road, it’s time to replace your coolant again, and after six, your brake fluid will be due for another change. When your vehicle has spent seven years on the road, be sure to check your idle speed, your water pump, and your timing belt. It’s also a good idea to replace your coolant at this time.
