Your Guide to 1997 Honda Passport Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Passport and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Passport could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Passport maintenance. Just follow your 1997 Honda Passport 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. 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 Passport perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Honda Passport problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Passport Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1997 Honda Passport and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Passport. 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.

Could your 1997 Honda Passport be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Passport may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Passport battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 Passport 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 1997 Honda Passport's engine run smoother. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 Passport, 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. 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 1997 Honda Passport? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Honda Passport steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Honda Passport 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 Passport's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Honda Passport 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!). 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 Passport’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Honda Passport radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1997 Honda Passport maintenance and repairs.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Passport? 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 Passport 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 Passport engines.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Passport 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.
