How Will I Know I Need an Oil Change?
Usually, you’ll want to have your Honda oil changed every 5,000 to 8,000 miles—so the best way to keep track is by keeping an eye on the odometer. But, if you lose track, louder engine noise, a sluggish performance, and a drop in efficiency are great indicators that it’s time to schedule your oil change.
Why Are My Brakes Making Noise?
There are actually quite a few reasons why your brakes are making noise. If the noise is more of a high-pitched squeal, it may mean that your brake pads need to be changed because the wear indicator tab is pressing against your rotors. If it’s more of a grinding sound, it may indicate that your calipers are broken or worn.
How Often Should I Have My Tires Rotated?
Having your tires rotated regularly allows you to get the most time and miles out of them. Generally, you’ll want to have them rotated about every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Luckily, this coincides with your oil change, so you could have both services performed in one visit.
What Type of Parts Should I Use for My Honda
The best parts to use for your Honda are Genuine Honda OEM Parts. They’re designed specifically for your vehicle. Aftermarket parts can work, but they’re not designed for your vehicle and they’re made from cheaper materials—resulting in easy breaks or premature wear.
How Can I Tell that I Have Low Tire Tread
Your tire tread is crucial for your vehicle to achieve traction. When your tread is low or worn, it means your tires are bald and won’t have the best grip. Take a penny and place it upside down in your tire tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head, it means that your tread is low and you should seek out a tire replacement.
