Depends on what you’ve done.
Chuck Coates I’ve only had it for a little over a year, but have done oil changes at regular intervals, rear pads and rotors, and had the ignition replaced. No service history otherwise.
Do the read differential fluid change.
And maybe trans fluid too.
Ok cool. I’ll be doing plugs too. It’s been acting a little weird. Auto, stalls out when shifting into gear after cold start. Starts rough upon restart. Seems to be a fuel delivery issue, but also seems like it’s related to power steering somehow.
Owners manual usually has a schedule……
Found one online. Just seeking some additional input and some dialogue with group members.
Understood……. was just trying to help with written material you mave have…..
Is it worth finding a hard copy? I am a bit of a bibliophile.
Let me see if I can make a PDF file from mine for you……. give me a while…………
The schedule, I mean ………
@David Gotcha. Much appreciated!
As for your roughness and starting, run a bottle of Sea Foam through it in a full tank. Maybe two. Now, you might notice that makes it even rougher BUT I bet the next tank you make notice a real improvement.
What about trans filter Chuck?
@Alley Uh- gonna ask others to chime in here but I think they are not replaceable.
AAA+ gold membership ! Lol
Sam Calabris Already used some miles to get it towed to my mechanic to fix the ignition. ?
Honda ignitions, blah!
Fighting the urge to start a GIF battle on this thread. Lol.
Um. Oil change????
I am indeed a little over mileage for my next change. Haha. Don’t remind me.
Power steering fluid and brake fluid change.
Spark plugs, flush the radiator, have the lifters adjusted by a Honda dealer. And of course maybe a cabin air filter.
Repeat the Honda recommended 110k mile tune-up which is all fluids (and filters), new serpentine belt, new spark plugs, valve clearance check and if needed adjustment, brake and chassis inspection.
Well, you don’t put services in the car….you have services performed on the car. Lol
I’ll be spending the time and money, to put in effort, to maintain my vehicle in a preventative manner. You’re right, it’s only a service if someone does it for you. Did I cover enough semantics for you?
But Elements can carry anything! ?
