Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Accord, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1998 Honda Accord maintenance schedule!

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Accord

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Honda Accord and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Accord. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1998 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. 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. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1998 Honda Accord's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1998 Accord. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Honda Accord.

Maintaining your Honda Accord steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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. 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 might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Accord cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Honda Accord radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1998 Honda Accord maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
