Honda Fluid Replacement Service
Engine coolant acts to absorb and regulate the heat that is naturally generated by the engine to keep the engine running at an optimum temperature. It also contains anti-freeze to permit operation in very cold temperatures, while at the same time protecting the cooling system components with its anti-corrosion properties. As the coolant's properties deteriorate with time, it is necessary to replace the engine coolant at the recommended service intervals. It is also recommended to check the coolant level regularly. Coolant loss may indicate a cooling system problem or leakage that could lead to engine overheating and damage. We recommend servicing your vehicles engine coolant system every 100,000 miles.
Automatic Transmission Fluid
Automatic Transmission Fluid acts to cool and lubricate internal transmission components. Over time, the properties of the fluid diminish and replacement is necessary at the recommended service intervals for your Honda vehicle. An inspection of the transmission, fluid hoses, pipes, and cooler (if equipped) will be performed during recommended maintenance. We recommend servicing the automatic transmission fluid every 30,000 miles, or whenever signaled by your Honda's maintenance minder system if applicable.
When the brake pedal is pressed, the brake fluid transfers hydraulic force to the brake calipers to slow or stop the vehicle. Brake fluid tends to absorb moisture from the air and as a result the performance of the fluid deteriorates over time. Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years. The brake hydraulic component system should also be inspected for leaks or damage. Brake fluid is also contained in the modulator that controls brake system pressure during ABS (anti-lock brake system) and VSA (vehicle stability assist) operation.
Hydraulic Clutch Fluid
Brake fluid is used in the hydraulic clutch system on vehicles equipped with a manual transmission. It requires replacement for the same reasons and at the same intervals as the fluid in the brake system.
Engine oil lubricates the engine's moving internal parts to protect them against wear and reduce friction. It also creates a protective seal between the moving and stationary parts, all while helping to cool the engine. As engine oil deteriorates with time, it loses its ability to properly protect the engine. Follow the recommended oil changes intervals specified by your Honda’s Owner’s Manual or Maintenance Minder system (if equipped).
Power Steering Fluid
Power steering fluid is designed to lubricate and protect vital steering components such as the power steering pump and steering rack from excessive wear. Over time power steering fluid can degrade causing improper lubrication of steering components which can lead to system malfunction or even power steering failure. We recommend that power steering fluid be flushed, filled, and inspected every 45,000 miles to ensure that your power steering system is functioning properly and that your vehicle remains safe out on the road.
Rear Differential Fluid
Servicing the fluid in the rear differential of your rear-wheel drive vehicle is a service that is often overlooked by many drivers. The rear differential is a component in your Honda that is designed to compensate for the difference in wheel rotational distance between the inner and outer wheels when cornering. In a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, the differential has its own housing and lubrication. Changing the rear differential fluid in your Honda is just as important as changing the engine oil. If lubrication of the rear differential becomes compromised, metal-on-metal contact will occur leading to system failure causing your vehicle to no longer be operational.
