What to Know About 1990 Honda Accord Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Accord and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Accord has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 1990 Honda Accord!

Honda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Accord running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1990 Honda Accord problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Accord Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Honda Accord for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 Honda Accord? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Accord battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 1990 Honda Accord running newer, longer. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1990 Accord in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Honda Accord.

Routine upkeep for your Honda Accord suspension and steering 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, provide Honda Accord steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Honda Accord's steering system require regular maintenance.

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.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Accord? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1990 Accord is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Honda Accord need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Honda Accord engines.
