How often should I service my 1999 Honda Accord?
When it comes to your Honda Accord, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Accord. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1999 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Accord's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1999 Honda Accord problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1999 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. 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 1999 Honda Accord be ready for a new battery? 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. 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Honda Accord won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1999 Honda Accord engine. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1999 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1999 Honda Accord.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Accord can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, provide the appropriate Honda Accord steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Honda Accord's steering system require 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 got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1999 Honda Accord maintenance.
