Maintenance Minder 6 Scheduled Maintenance
Recommended service for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline:
Replace VTM-4 rear differential fluid: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher level of mechanical (shear) stress to fluid or frequently fully loaded. This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the differential fluid changed at 7,500 miles (12,000 km), then every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).
Problem with a good tuning of the engine. If the engine was not checked on the regular maintenance schedules then it is time you did all the required one for the clocked mileage or time.
Make sure that the oil, oil filter, fuel filter was changed. secondly check on the plugs, the Ht , the firing intensity, the fuel pressure and calibration. A code check is important if there is no result but the RPM going wild can be mainly related with poor timing- firing and valve- and fuel calibration.
A basic tune up on your vehicle is a spark plug change, fuel filter and air filter change. And depending on the miles, timing check,spark plug wires, distributor rotor. Maintenance schedules are listed with your owners manual and other material when the vehicle is sold new, usually maintenance consists of oil and filter change, tire rotation, checking belts and hoses, and many other items for wear and tear, like brake checks, timing belt, these items are checked at specific intervals based on mileage or months. take care and thank you for the question.
As the cars technology advances, the term tune up is fading and replacing with term Scheduled Maintenance Service. For most of the cars the time for these maintenance service is at 30K, 60K and 90K. You have to choices: Service your car by yourself, or send to a dealer. Because maintenance services might be as basic as an oil change, air filter replacement, or more complicated as brake job, coolant system flush, brake fluid flush, transmission oil and filter change, and finally as complicated as, timing belt/chain replacement, if you decide to service by yourself, I recommend to Haynes Repair Manual, Specific for your car. For your car Toyota provides all Scheduled Maintenance Services according to the miles on your car at: http://smg.toyotapartsandservice.com/ The answer for your question based on Toyota blog is:
Replace engine oil and oil filter Rotate tires Visually inspect brake linings/drums and brake pads/discs Additional Maintenance Items for Special Operating Conditions:
Driving While Towing Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis Driving on Dirt Roads or Dusty Roads Inspect ball joints and dust covers Inspect drive shaft boots Inspect engine air filter Inspect steering linkage and boots Re-torque drive shaft bolt (4WD) Tighten nuts and bolts on chassis
Applicable Footnotes: 1) Reset the oil replacement reminder light ("MAINT REQD") or the message "OIL MAINTENANCE REQUIRED" on the multi-information display after engine oil replacement.
In your owners manual you'll find the manufactured recomended oil which is 5W30. Synthetic oil will work and protect your engine twice as long as regular oil. I use synthetic on my wife's car so I don't have to change it as often.
The choice is yours. Don't forget to rate this answer.
The maintenance schedule is an outline and should be followed if you want to keep your vehicle in good condition. the maintenance items listed in the schedule are performed at their set intervals for a reason. Manufacturers have found the wear limits on certain parts and those parts may need to be serviced or replaced at those intervals or catastrophic failures may result.
Really depends on whether the maintenance has been kept up on it with records and how hard the car has been driven. Hopefully its been taken care of. I'd say a minor tune up. Plugs, wires, oil change. Check and possibly change tranny fluid. It should be good, that engine will go 250,000 - 300,000 miles without much trouble if you take care of it. True story. Hope it helps!
The maintenance req'd lignt comes on every 5,00 miles to remind you that an oil change is due. It has nothing to do with a tune-up or other scheduled maintenance. It is just an oil change reminder, and needs to be manually reset after the oil is changed.
