Your new car comes equipped with sensors under the hood that can detect when maintenance needs to be done and will thus prompt an indicator on your dashboard letting you know this.

What does the lighted wrench on your MID or dashboard mean? 

Its just one component of the Maintenance Minder system which calculates when you should have your next service. Each vehicle has its own maintenance needs, so Honda develops specific maintenance schedules based on model equipment, such as transmission choice or the addition of a towing package. The Maintenance Schedule calculates service needs based on your car's mileage. It checks engine-operating conditions and helps coordinate oil service dates and other maintenance check-ups. Prevent problems before they occur.

What Does Honda Mileage Maintenance Include?

It is always important to get your Honda checked up regularly to make sure it is at its utmost ability and in prestige condition. You never want to be driving along when suddenly your car breaks down because of a problem that was never checked out previously. So, what does Honda Mileage Maintenance include? Everything from the usual checks and services to a complete package depending on how many miles your car has seen.

Honda Mileage Maintenance Services

There are standard services that each car sees on a regular basis as well more difficult services for older vehicles. This includes the typical tire rotation, which involves moving the front tires to the rear and the rear tires to the front in order to prolong their life. This is due to the fact that tires on vehicles do not ware at the same rate. This should be done every 3,000 to 10,000 miles depending on the vehicle and tires.

While they are being rotated, signs of ware and tare on the brakes, suspension, and alignment can also be noticed to see if they need servicing as well.

Another casual service is the spark plug. A warm spark plug may reduce engine performance and cause abnormal noise. However, most newer vehicles are recommended to change the spark plug every 100,000 miles when older vehicles tend to need a change every 30,000 miles.

It is really important to service your Honda any time a Honda Oil Change is needed. 

 If the remaining engine oil life is 15 to 6 percent, you will see the engine oil life indicator every time you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position. The maintenance minder indicator will also come on and the maintenance item code(s) for other scheduled maintenance items needing service will be displayed next to the engine oil life indicator.

There are also the more non-regular services like the replacement of the timing belt. A worn-out belt can easily affect engine performance and cause more severe internal engine damage. A broken timing belt will easily damage the engine and make it stop running while a loose belt will lessen engine performance and may break. The timing belt should be replaced every 60,000 to 90,000 miles depending on the vehicle or if the belt has become loose and damaged.
