When to Have A Honda Tune-Up?

Most drivers understand the importance of an oil change. This service prevents engine sludge build up, lackluster performance, and costly repairs. Most manufacturers recommend an oil change every 5,000-miles the vehicle is driven, but some models may go as long as 7,500-miles before an oil change becomes necessary. Although an oil change is an essential service that keeps your Honda vehicle performing efficiently, it is just one of the many services that your vehicle depends on to run smoothly.

Recommended Oil Change Read the owner’s manual accommodating your vehicle. You’ll find a recommended service schedule listed. This schedule determines when to schedule service at the service center to have preventative maintenance performed. Along with the oil change, these services prevent breakdown, reduce vehicle emissions, and ensure that your vehicle brings the highest resale value later down the road should you decide to sell. Most manufacturers recommend you schedule service every 15,000, 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles.

15,000-Mile Service

The first recommended service occurs at 15,000-miles which, for most drivers, is about one-year after purchase. This is a basic service that includes inspection of the vehicle parts and components under the hood. Wear and tear and damage can occur without notice. This inspection should ensure that no trouble lurks underneath your nose. The tires on the vehicle should be rotated to promote even wear and the air filter is replaced, which should improve fuel efficiency. The technician should also check the fluids and the battery to make sure it is working the way that it should.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 30,000-Mile Service

    Tire Rotation IntervalsAt the 30,000-mile service, expect the technician to perform the same services that he provided at the initial service. However, they should also change the air filter and the power steering fluid in the vehicle. They should also inspect the transmission fluid oil and the filter and if recommended, replace it at this time. The inspection should includes a look at the exterior of the vehicle, since rust and other damage may interfere with the vehicle more than you realize. If necessary, spark plugs and spark plug wires are also changed.

  • Check Brake Pads - Replace as Needed
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Check Fuel Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 60,000-Mile Service

    Your 60,000-mile service includes replacement transmission oil and filter and new gaskets, hoses, valves, and belts. Most of these components have exceeded their lifetime at this point and replacing them should improve the vehicle’s overall operation. The tune-up should also include the services provided at the prior services. The brake pads and rotors should be inspected at this visit and may need to be replaced. If the spark plugs and wires were not changed at the last tune-up, the technician should replace them at this time. The technician should also inspect the ignition system and the electrical components inside the car.

  • Replace Battery as Needed
  • Inspect Brake Rotors - Replace as Needed
  • Check for Wear on Belts and Hoses - Replace as Needed
  • 90,000-Mile Service

    The technician should provide the same services as provided at the 60,000-mile service and more during the 90,000-mile service. Replacing the timing belt and the serpentine belts are the two major services recommended during this tune-up. Since the vehicle has been on-the-road for many years at this point, the technician should closely inspect every component under the hood, looking for signs of damage. The ignition system should be the primary focus for the technician services at this visit.
