Question: Getting my 2003 Honda Civic serviced tomorrow morning, How much...

How much would it cost me to have my car serviced for the following... according to this site at 60,000 miles I need to: (I'm currently at 62,775 miles) 1) Drain, Flush & Refill the cooling system. 2) Replace sparkplugs. 3) Replace Crankcase oil filter. 4) Replace Air Filter Element. 5) Rotate Wheels & Tires. 6) Change Crankcase Fluid and have some other things checked? I bought my Civic at a Honda dealer last month and I am wondering if I really need to do everything DriveSide has recommended above. Per I see that the car passed NYC inspection, Safty inspection and Emissions inspection. Also, when will I need to replace the timing belt. Please advise? Thank you much. -Frank

It's best to get local estimates for service work as labor rates and parts prices vary depending on where you are located.

I'd need to know your engine size to look up timing belt replacement specs. You can find that information also in your owner's manual in the service schedule and in our servicing your car section of this website.

As a general rule, most manufacturers recommend a timing belt replacement somewhere between 60K and 100K miles, but you should really look up the info specific to your vehicle. The dealer would know as well.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
