What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1987 Honda Civic?

Your Guide to 1987 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Civic and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Civic could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Civic maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1987 Honda Civic!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Civic running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Honda Civic problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Civic

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Honda Civic 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 Civic’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Honda Civic. 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). 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. 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 Civic 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 Civic won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1987 Honda Civic'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 1987 Civic. 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 1987 Honda Civic.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Civic 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Honda Civic steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Honda Civic's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Honda Civic 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. 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 Civic’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Honda Civic? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.

1987 Honda Civic Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 Honda Civic. Get answers to common Honda Civic maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Honda Civic alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Honda Civic? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Civic? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Civic in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
