What to Know About 2014 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Honda Ridgeline, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Ridgeline could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Ridgeline maintenance. Just follow your 2014 Honda Ridgeline 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Ridgeline running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2014 Honda Ridgeline problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Ridgeline Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Honda Ridgeline and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Ridgeline. 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 2014 Honda Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 Ridgeline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2014 Honda Ridgeline engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2014 Ridgeline. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2014 Honda Ridgeline.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Ridgeline can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Honda Ridgeline steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Honda Ridgeline's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Honda Ridgeline radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2014 Honda Ridgeline 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.

2014 Honda Ridgeline Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Honda Ridgeline. Get answers to common Honda Ridgeline maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Honda Ridgeline alignment checked? 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 Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline engines.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? 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 Ridgeline, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
