How often should I change the oil on a honda civic vp 2005 that I put only 6000 miles a year.


Its still best that you at least change your oil once a year, every 3000 miles is recommended. If you have a car with that low mileage you still want to make it last a long time. Whats $70-$100 bucks a year to have peace of mind. Even if your not driving it the oil still should be changed regularly.

Do I need to change brake fluid, clutch fluid and power steering fluid in my 2000 Honda ex 2Dr. coupe? It has 97,000 miles on it.


Unless you have a record of these fluids being changed in the past 18 months you should definitely change them. These fluids will degrade over time and need to be changed at appropriate intervals.
You should also flush the engine radiator and cooling system and replace with new coolant to the manufacturer's specs unless this has been done in the past 18 months.
Also ensure you change the engine oil and filter frequently (certainly more frequently than the manufacturer maximum interval specs which is based on optimum driving conditions which does not reflect reality.)

Frequent fluid changes = cheap preventative maintenance.

Brake fluid - every 2 years minimum
Clutch fluid - every 2 1/2 years minimum
PS fluid - every 3 years
Coolant flush and change - every 2 years
Engine oil - every 3500-4000 miles or 5 months minimum whichever is sooner
Oil filter - every second oil change.

The oil change pre set is 5000 miles is this correct


Yes it is. On your newer vehicles the factory has set your oil change light to come on at 5k, due to the technology in semi synthetic oils. Mazda uses a semi senthetic oil from the factory. I still recommend changing your oil every 3k. You may also consult your owners manual for the recommended service interval and adhere to it. As long as you adhere to manufacturer recommendations and keep your oil change reciepts, you should be ok if anything were to happen.

I have Honda CIVIC,2005 And I like to know I keep the maintenance of this car


Honda is a reliable car but you still have to observe a few things to keep it running in top shape. Make sure that engine oil is replaced regularly. The interval in which oil is replaced is based on the type and oil manufacturer spec. Coolant should always be checked and fluid levels for motor oil, brakes, power steering, ATF for automatic and clutch for manual should never be allowed to get to a low level.

My honda civic 98 hx m4va transmition type,the trans drives fine exept when gearing up I can't feel when shifting and rpms goes up and down,I replace the transmition and still doing the same, also when...


I have a 1998 Civic HX 2DR as well and mine also takes a moment to engage when you press the gas. I don't know if this is normal or not? I just bought the car and I need to replace the trans fluid only because I don’t know if there is Honda oil or another brand in it. The CVT transmissions only can use Honda's CVT oil. There is a recommend alternative oil but based on the manual it’s only for temporary use until you can replace it with the Honda oil otherwise it will cause damage to the transmission over time.

95 honda civic automatic will not shift into second


Hi there OK, I assume that the autobox is stuck in first and you have two possible problems. Firstly, the shift value in the shift value block is stuck thus continually selecting first gear, or the speed sensor within the auto box is seized. Both these problems is as a result of not having the gearbox oil changed as per the recommended service intervals. Firstly, identify the colour of oil on the auto tarns dip-stick - if it's black, you need to change the oil in the autobox. After you have done this, drive the car in first for a few miles to circulate the new oil and after the vehicle is at normal operating temperture, go as fast as you can in first gear. What this is doing is maximising the load on the speed sensor in the gearbox and by increasing the speed it might just unseaze and change into the other gears. The other thing to do is a stall test, but I suggest that you have a Honda Dealer do this. Best regards, Scottech
