100K Maintenance - What am I missing >>

Approaching 100k. I haven't done anything maintenance wise besides changing the oil and maybe a few air filters. Car runs fine but want to perform any maintenance I missed or needed for 100K.

Thinking the below but wanted to see if there were additional suggestions.

Spark plugs
Timing belt
Transmission fluid
Engine coolant
Brakes and brake fluid
Air and pollen filter

Thanks....

No such thing as "100,000 Mile/Kilometer Maintenance". What is your engine/transmission configuration?

What year is the car?
Spark plugs and Timing belt you should now because its time to do that.
For spark plugs, use NGK
Coolant, dealer fills it up for you
Have the shop do a drain and fill, not a flush
How bad is your brake pads? Brake fluids you must do every 3 years, regardless of mileage
Air and Pollen filter (in cabin air filter) must be changed every 50k miles or so, because it gets dirty easily, as the air filter near the engine.
Have your did a D&F for the power stteering fluid (if our car has that)?

It's a 2013 EXL CVT.

Brake pads have life left for sure. Even if they don't need it i'm going to replace them. Plan on doing everything every 100k and see how long she runs.

So if there are things that need done at 120 or 140 or whatever I'll do it now.

I would read the Owner's Manual at your mileage. You don't have a timing belt, you have a timing chain as you have the 4 cylinder engine. Timing chains don't need replacing.

For anyone else coming across this thread: Read your owner's manual. There is no such thing as a 100,000 mile service, nor a 120,000 or 140,000 mile service. Knowledge of what your car needs begins in the Owner's Manual.

Totally agree. Just go with your knowledge of what really needs to be changed, since its your car. Those 100k miles service is just a recommendation from the dealer for what needs to be changed. Not everything on that list should be replaced immediately.

I was just getting to ready to say something along the lines of not trusting the mechanic who is doing the timing belt on your I4 2013 Accord.

My personal thoughts, from now on go with the maintenance minder. I would wait until you hit 100k to see if it tells you to do sparkplugs and then do them. There is no timing belt on i4s. Your cvt fluid from what I read should be around 50k so I would get on that and then follow the minder. I read engine coolant is at 100k so you should be good there but after this time I heard the time shortens so follow the minder. Breaks and filter sound like you are good.

So I'd do the maintenance as stated but after this follow the minder.

Model: Honda Accord 2013 Sport 83k Miles
Mods: Back Windows at 5% and front at 50%. Plastidiped Stock Rims.

Sounds like nothing additional from what I mentioned.

Sorry about the mislead on the timing belt. Meant serpentine belt.

I get I should just follow the minder. I however have ignored it for 100k so just trying to catch up and do what I can for the next 100k. I'll do all the maintenance myself so not worried about doing a little more than what is required on the minder. I have a tendency to severely neglect Honda's.. they just run and run with nothing done to them. Would normally just let something break and just fix it then. Not sure why I feel the need to do some maintenance. I guess I'm bored and 100k seems like a good number to at least look into it.

Appreciate the feedback and if there is more I should add to the list let me know.

Air and pollen filter - you mentioned doing these

Thanks....
The serpentine belt would be good. People say to change it at around the 100K mark. Take a look at my signature, and you can get a ballpark of when certain things are needed. I've gone by the maintenance minder, but seem to procrastinate at times

My dealer mechanic changes my turn signal fluid for $99 (half off) every 6 months. I'm surprised you haven't done that. Do you use your turn signals?

Nesone.. thanks. Agree some of this should have been done or is coming up. Will take care of at 100k mark.

Anything else between 100 and 200k. Probably won't touch maintenance again unless something breaks until then.

Not sure what the deal is with some of these responses. Verifying what maintenance to do doesn't seem that lame. I guess I'm getting old.. I mean it's all in the manual right.

Don't worry though guys, I got the platinum maintenence kit with full synthetic halogen fluid. Should go well with led headlight conversion.

Yeah, it's all in the manual, but the difference nowadays is the "when" to do the work. It varies based upon the driving conditions for everyone. And that is why the maintenance minder plays a key role. For me, my minder has been telling me to change the oil about every 10K miles, where others have stated every 6K. Now I do alot of commuting, but about 90% freeway, and I drive like an old man... or am I an old man already?

May want to think about getting a fuel injector / top end cleaning done as this will disolve the carbon build up. Look for a shop that carries the AC Delco (GM) cleaner. If you drive a lot of city more carbon can build up. Use of a fuel system cleaner once in a while will help clean the O2 sensor contacts & do a little cleaning to the cat.
