Honda Maintenance Tips for Drivers in DFW

As a responsible Honda owner, you’ll want to stay up to date on your vehicle’s regular service. Always adhere to your vehicle’s maintenance minder or maintenance schedule which can be found in your owner’s manual. And in addition, perform self-checks periodically on the following major components and systems to ensure crucial elements of your Honda are in proper working order.

Brakes, Brake Pads, and Brake Rotors

  • Checking the different components of your vehicle’s braking system on a regular basis — between scheduled services — can help guarantee the continued successful operation of your Honda’s brakes. You’ll want to be mindful of any squealing sounds, which could be your brakes’ audible wear indicators alerting you of a need for new brake pads.  
  • Also, check for low brake fluid and the quality of your brake fluid. If your brake fluid shows excessive signs of contamination, you should get a brake fluid flush.
  • When you replace your brake pads or brake rotors, use Genuine Honda Parts. These will be better suited to your vehicle’s mechanical operations systems.


  • Be mindful of an overpowering sulfur-like odor coming from your vehicle’s exhaust. If you notice this, please contact Honda Customer Service or your local dealership. For drivers in the DFW area, Norm Reeves Honda North Richland Hills is the place to go!
  • Also be sure to use “Summer” and “Winter” blended fuels is the coordinating seasons, if you store your own fuel. Summer fuel may not vaporize correctly in cool weather and vice versa.
  • Do not use gasoline containing MMT (Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl).
  • Never use a lower octane fuel than is recommended in your Honda Owner’s Manual
  • Take all traditional precautions when refueling your vehicle

Timing Belt

  • Inspect your timing belt for cracks, low treads, and other signs of wear. Replace your timing belt with a Genuine Honda Timing Belt when the time comes. This ensures original fit, which is crucial to the successful operation of your vehicle.

Oils & Fluids

  • When any of your Honda’s oils or fluids are running low, refill or flush them using Genuine Honda products. These are better suited to your vehicle’s inner workings than any aftermarket products, and they will ultimately perform better when it comes to preventing corrosion and oxidation.

Air Filters

  • Replace your Honda’s Engine and Cabin Air Filters regularly with Genuine Honda parts. They are engineered to deliver maximum filtration and are better suited to preventing adverse effects than any aftermarket products.


  • Different vehicles have different towing requirements. Check your owner’s manual to find the specific information on your vehicle’s towing capabilities.

If your Honda is due for service, or you notice anything when performing a self-check of your Honda car, truck, van, or SUV, it’s always best to bring it into your local Honda dealership. For drivers in the DFW area, Norm Reeves Honda North Richland Hills is the place to go!
