CONTACT AND APPOINTMENT INFO:
We recommend an oil change every 5 thousand miles. There are 2 exceptions. The very first oil change because the manufacturer places a conditioner that helps your piston rings seat, so we suggest waiting to 6 thousand miles. As your car gets older or if you happen to have an oil burner, we suggest every 3 thousand miles. With every oil change we always perform an all points check up. We check tires, brakes, lights, belts, hoses, fluid levels, filters, cooling system and wipers.
We suggest every 15k for a regular transmission with DW1 Fluid. Every 20k for a CVT (constant velocity transmission) with HCF-2 Fluid, and every 60k for the newer push button transmissions with the DW 3.0 Fluid.
• Bearing noise coming from the transmission
• Burning sweet smell coming from your transmission fluid
• Dark brown or black fluid
• Trouble shifting gears
• High RPM’s but transmission not engaging
• Vehicle is inoperative

REID’S RECOMMENDED SERVICE SCHEDULE
*Timing Belt Car
If a Timing Belts breaks or becomes loose, your engine will be ‘out of time’, this is catastrophic for a combustion engine. This is why it must be replaced every 105,000 miles, it could last longer but the longer you go the higher your odds are of disaster. There are other circumstances when the timing belt will require replacement: when the belt is oil-soaked or damaged, or when another part failed, or is failing, such as the water pump, or any of the tensioners. The timing belt job is done to avoid having the timing belt and related parts break/fail while driving, which typically results in bent valves.
**Drive Belt Car
In 2002, Honda started moving away from the timing belt in 4 cylinder engines. These engines have a timing chain instead, however these cars still have parts that need replacing every 105,000 mile mark such as, the drive belt and its tensioner assembly. Your vehicle’s drive/serpentine belt run the power steering pump (unless it’s electric), ac compressor, and the alternator. There are other reasons for drive belt replacement: when the belt is oil-soaked, or other components have broken and damaged the belt.
MAINTENANCE DUE AT 10 YEARS OF AGE:
Every 10 years, or earlier in the event of very high miles, your radiator should be replaced, as preventative maintenance. The radiator is your engine’s cooling system, and your engine cannot run if it becomes too hot. In fact, some of the parts will melt and finally the engine will fail. This very important part is now made of plastic. Plastics are made to degrade, as it degrades the plastic become brittle and dry. The hot dry climate and the hot water running through the system all speed up this degrading process. This is why we recommend replacing your vehicle’s radiator every 10 years.
GENERAL SAFETY INSPECTION:
The cost is $50 and will be applied to any work done on the same day. A brake inspection (with no symptoms) is $50 which will be applied to brake work done.
