What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 Honda Accord?

Here’s Why 1989 Honda Accord Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Honda Accord and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Accord maintenance. Just follow your 1989 Honda Accord maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Accord perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Honda Accord problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Accord Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Honda Accord for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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 1989 Honda Accord be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Honda Accord battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Accord stranded. Your Honda Accord could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1989 Honda Accord's engine run smoother. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Accord in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Honda Accord.

Maintaining your Honda Accord steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Honda Accord suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Honda Accord's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Honda Accord maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.
