How often should I service my 1986 Honda Wagovan?
Take care of your Honda Wagovan and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Wagovan has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Wagovan maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1986 Honda Wagovan!
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; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Wagovan perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Honda Wagovan problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Honda Wagovan and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Wagovan’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Honda Wagovan. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Honda Wagovan battery. 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 Wagovan stranded. Your Honda Wagovan could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1986 Honda Wagovan's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 Wagovan. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 1986 Honda Wagovan? We can help with that, too!
