1989 Honda CRX Maintenance Schedule

Your Guide to 1989 Honda CRX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Honda CRX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your CRX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get CRX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1989 Honda CRX maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your CRX perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Honda CRX problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda CRX

Bring your 1989 Honda CRX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 CRX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Honda CRX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your CRX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda CRX 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your CRX stranded. Your Honda CRX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Honda CRX engine. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 CRX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Honda CRX? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Honda CRX suspension and steering system 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Honda CRX 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda CRX's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda CRX 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 CRX cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Honda CRX radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Honda CRX maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Honda CRX. Get answers to common Honda CRX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda CRX? 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 CRX to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Honda CRX engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Honda CRX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
