Here’s Why 1999 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Civic to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Civic has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 1999 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, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 prevent common 1999 Honda Civic problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Civic Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 Honda Civic for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 Honda Civic? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Civic may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Civic 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 Civic) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Civic won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1999 Honda Civic's engine run smoother. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 Civic, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1999 Honda Civic? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Civic can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, perform Honda Civic 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 Civic's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Civic services, 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.

Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1999 Honda Civic 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.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1999 Honda Civic. Get answers to common Honda Civic maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Civic? 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 switch my Honda Civic to high mileage oil? 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.
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? 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.
