Probably the one most important service to keep your vehicle alive
for the longest time is to change the oil and filter every 3,000 to 3,500
miles! Another service that is important in keeping your car dependable at
higher mileages is to have the timing belt replaced at 6 years or the
recommended mileage ( 90,000 miles on Honda and Acura makes and
60,000 on most other makes). Some newer makes have timing
chains. These also have to be replaced, but usually at 100,000 miles.
Most of these engines self destruct if the chain breaks!
One of the best ways to avoid unpleasant surprises is to have
your vehicle looked over about every 10,000 miles. That way things
that are starting to show signs of wear can be monitored so the
owner doesn't have an unexpected breakdown. These always seem
to happen when we least expect them.
