Your Guide to 1998 Honda Odyssey Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Odyssey and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Odyssey. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Odyssey, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1998 Honda Odyssey maintenance schedule!

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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Odyssey running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1998 Honda Odyssey problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Odyssey Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Honda Odyssey to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Odyssey. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Honda Odyssey. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Odyssey may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Odyssey 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 Odyssey 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Honda Odyssey running newer, longer. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 Odyssey, 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 1998 Honda Odyssey.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Odyssey 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 the appropriate Honda Odyssey 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 Odyssey's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Odyssey 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!). 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 Odyssey’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Honda Odyssey radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1998 Honda Odyssey maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Honda Odyssey. Get answers to common Honda Odyssey maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Honda Odyssey? You know your Honda Odyssey better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Honda Odyssey? If your Honda Odyssey has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Odyssey 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.
