Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1985 Honda Accord

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 Honda Accord?

Here’s Why 1985 Honda Accord Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Honda Accord, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Accord could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Accord maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Honda Accord!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Accord's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Honda Accord problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Honda Accord Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1985 Honda Accord to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Accord’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1985 Honda Accord be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Accord may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Accord battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Accord) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Accord could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Honda Accord running newer, longer. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Accord, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1985 Honda Accord? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Accord can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Honda Accord steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Accord's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Accord maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Honda Accord’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
