Ck your manual, what is required to be done at that interval, it may include more than an oil change, ie, the timing belt, tranny fluid, brake fluid, etc.
if its just fluid changes you can do that yourself, but if more than that its better just to take it in.

Beginning at 50 - 60 mph, now get light front-end vibration with both old and new tires.

the wheels probably need balancing, take it to your local tyre depot and they can do it for you.

Replaced both 02 sensors on 2003 honda element engine light still on drove vehicle 50 miles

The CEL will not turn off by itself. You have several options.

1. Take it to a dealer to clear the code, which will cost $50.00 to $100.00, depending on where you live.

2. Purchase a code reader (Actron makes a couple of nice models for about $150.00), and you'll have it for any future needs.

3. Find a friend who as a code reader and will let you use it.

4. Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery for about 5 minutes. This is a ****-shoot as you can't be certain that the CEL is on because of the O2 sensor. If it was on for some other reason, the light will just come back on after you've driven a few miles. Also when you disconnet the battery, you will need to reset your radio. You should find the reset code on a sticker in your glove box.

I have a 2004 honda element with 190,000 miles on it-what are the mandatory service requirements and, does it have a timing belt or timing chain?

I think 2.4l engines don't have t/belt.
as for service , look at your owner manual and see where maintanence schedule stop , go back to first page and start it from 5k miles all over.
If your book shows you svc. up to 105k miles then after that you make another round from begining.

Right rear pad and worse

The problem described here indicates that you may have the AWD (full time 4WD) drivetrain of the 2003 Element.

It is normal to have 1 side of the vehicle to have increased wear due to the transmission differential, that allows your vehicle's wheels to move at different speeds from the others (turning, inclines, etc.)

Your brake pads really need constant inspection and possible replacement (approx 5,000 miles) with everyday driving, and is really a consumable item like your fuel.

You will find that it is much cheaper to replace the brake pad/lining of your disc brakes than grinding down the supposedly shiny discs that slow down your vehicle.

RE: salt/snow, you can improve your discs' longevity by rinsing them out with warm water after being driven in extreme conditions.

Hope this helps.

Cannot reset maintenance light on 2003 Honda Element

The dealer has issued a technical service bulletin regarding the maintinace required lamp I belive it states all lights headlamps tail and side markers have to be off and the door must be closed in order for the reset to work. How to Reset
Press and hold the trip/reset button, turn the ignition switch ON , and continue to hold the button for more than 10 seconds. this should fix the problem if not the the daytime running lights will have to be disabled before it will reset.
