Your Honda Pilot Maintenance Schedule
This service appointment will be a relatively short one, consisting of your basic oil change and a tire rotation (if the latter is necessary). Regular oil changes are a must to ensure high performance in your Pilot, as they’ll keep the engine lubricated and regulate its temperature.
At the 15,000-mile mark, you’ve been driving your Pilot for roughly one year. Like during your last service interval, your car will need an oil change and tire rotation, but you’ll also add a number of other maintenance jobs, including inspections of the following:
- Fuel lines/hoses
- Braking system
- Exhaust system
- Fluid levels
- Tie rod ends, steering gearbox, and boots
Your last service interval involved several inspections. This time around, you’ll only have a few parts that need to be replaced. For instance, you’ll need to check the rear differential fluid, change the cabin air filter and engine air filter, and inspect the drive belt(s). You’ll also want to change the oil and rotate the tires, as you’ve been doing.
Be aware that certain parts of the SUV, such as brake pads or spark plugs, may be a little bit worn by this point. Your technician will let you know if they need to be changed, or if they have more miles left in them.
For most vehicles, the 60,000-mile mark is a big deal, and the Honda Pilot is no different. Be sure to have your Honda technician complete the following replacements and inspections to make sure that your Honda continues running smoothly:
- Change the oil and replace the oil filter
- Check and/or change the rear differential fluid
- Change transfer case fluid
- Inspect fuel lines/hoses
- Inspect braking system
- Inspect exhaust system
- Inspect suspension
- Inspect tie rod ends, steering gearbox, and boots
- Inspect/adjust drive belt(s)
- Inspect/adjust valve clearance
- Replace cabin air and engine air filters
- Replace timing belt
- Rotate tires
In addition to everything on this list, we want to emphasize how important it is to change the transmission fluid during this service appointment too!
