What to Know About 1996 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Civic and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Civic has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Civic, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Honda Civic!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Civic running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 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 1996 Honda Civic and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Civic's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1996 Honda Civic be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 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 1996 Honda Civic's engine run smoother. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 Civic, check out the information table at the beginning 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 1996 Honda Civic.

Routine upkeep for your Honda Civic suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Civic 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. 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.

If you skip recommended Honda Civic services, 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 Civic cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Honda Civic radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Honda Civic maintenance.
