What to Know About 1989 Honda Prelude Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Honda Prelude to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Prelude 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 Prelude, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1989 Honda Prelude!

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. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Prelude's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1989 Honda Prelude problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Prelude Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Honda Prelude 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Prelude's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1989 Honda Prelude be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Prelude 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Prelude) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Prelude could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1989 Honda Prelude's engine run smoother. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Prelude, 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Honda Prelude.

Maintaining your Honda Prelude 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Honda Prelude steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Honda Prelude's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Prelude 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 Prelude’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Honda Prelude? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1989 Honda Prelude maintenance and repairs.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Prelude? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1989 Prelude is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Honda Prelude need 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 Prelude engines.
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Prelude, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
