Maintaining Your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda Ridgeline

Your new Napleton Oak Lawn Honda Ridgeline, is a great new example of innovative thinking at Honda.  Precision engineered and built, it can handle every task you throw at it and still be able to carry the family as well. You'll get the most out of it if you follow Honda's recommended maintenance schedule. A complete list of service schedules can be found in your Ridgeline Owner's Manual but your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda service experts will be just a phone call away.

Automotive Wheel Alignment

Brake Pads and Brake Rotors: Brake Pads and Brake Rotors are two of the most critically important pieces of equipment found on your Napleton Honda Ridgeline. They provide optimal power for stopping and control of your new Honda Ridgeline. Like the old saying, "Slow and Easy Win the Race," easy application of the brakes will extend the life of the pads. But they will still eventually wear out. Your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda service advisor will be happy to inspect the brake pads and rotors whenever you are in for an oil change or other service. Replacing them with Genuine Honda Replacement parts will insure your Ridgeline is like new, regardless of how old it is.

Windshield Wiper Replacement: It's possible to take your Honda Ridgeline almost everywhere, but what fun is that if you are unable to see clearly up ahead? There's nothing like a fresh pair of wiper blades to keep the rain, snow and mud directly away from your line of vision. Over time though, wiper blades can become brittle and should be replaced. Pro tip: If they are causing water spots and streaks on the windshield, that's a sign that it's time for replacement. Napleton Oak Lawn Honda's Parts and Service departments stock a full lineup of Honda Wiper Blades made specifically for your new Honda Ridgeline.

Tire Rotation: The tires on your new Oak Lawn Honda Ridgeline can take you everywhere, but the object is to get there safely. Rotating them helps to make sure the front tires don't wear out before the rear or vice versa. Ideally, they should all wear out at the same time. Excessive wear and tear on just one end of the car is a giveaway that they haven't been rotated in a while. The service team at Napleton Oak Lawn Honda suggests a tire rotation at the same time you have your oil changed. They should be rotated every 7,500-miles, and always before an all-wheel-alignment.

Transmission Fluid change:
The transmission on your new Oak Lawn Honda Ridgeline is a sealed unit, needing very little maintenance to be performed on it. But care should be taken especially in the case of a high-mileage vehicle. Honda recommends changing oil at the 90,000 mark. Details like these will help to keep your Ridgeline running for miles and miles, year after year. Any questions? Please check with your Honda Ridgeline owner's manual and your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda service advisor.

Oil and Filters: Your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda Ridgeline is powered by a precision-built engine that will provide years of reliability. It performs best with fresh synthetic or conventional motor oil, and a new oil filter to remove dirt and debris. It is the life blood of your new Honda vehicle, and should be replaced every 7,500 miles or 12-months, whichever occurs first. Please consult your Honda Ridgeline Owner's Manual and your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda Service Advisor for details.

Other Essential Fluids:
Having no brake fluid, motor oil or transmission fluid can be annoying, but none more annoying than an empty windshield wiper reservoir. Especially while in the middle of a major road trip. Stop by your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda service department, even between oil changes to have your fluids topped off. Call up for more information today.

Spark Plugs: Typically maintenance free, spark plugs should be replaced every 30,000 miles or so. Simply put, they put the combustion into the internal combustion engine. Your Napleton Oak Lawn Honda service department agrees, and stocks nearly every size needed for your Honda Vehicles! Your Honda Ridgeline owner's manual can offer more extensive details.

Air Filters: The engine in your new Oak Lawn Honda Ridgeline requires a free flowing amount of fresh air to breathe. The Ridgeline's Air Filter is made to trap particles of debris while continuing to allow the engine to operate. Still it eventually can fill up, causing it to lose some of its efficiency. A blocked filter results in less mileage than you have come to expect from your Honda Ridgeline. Stop by the Napleton Oak Lawn Honda service department to have it inspected today. Your Ridgeline's Owner's Manual recommends changing it every 30,000 miles unless you live in a particularly dusty region of the United States, where you should change it more frequently.

The Honda Ridgeline's Owner's Manual offers more information on the operation and service schedule of your new Honda Vehicle. Additionally, the service department and advisors at Napleton Oak Lawn Honda are eager to offer you professional service that will keep your new Honda running and feeling like new. Call for more information today.
