No, they are just trying to rid you of some money. If the engine oil is dirty it just needs changing not a flush. Change your oil/filter every 5,000 and forget about an engine flush. Notice this is a body shop telling you about your engine. See anything wrong with that? They may know body work but they for sure do not know engines. If this is a V6 have the cam belt replaced at 110,000 miles as this is an interference engine. If it is a 4 cylinder it has a chain so nothing for you to do.

Engine light came on for the first time on my 2007 Honda Accord 2.4 Liter engine. Oil is a little dirty @ 50% - not quite ready to change and the level seems fine. The engine has no unusual sounds or...

Engine light comes on when a particular part is under-performing, not necessarily broken. Have the vehicle scanned, and find out which part is the culprit. For example, a oxygen sensor not working right will light up the engine light, it will not affect performance, but the vehicle will not pass emissions inspection.

My 2001 honda crv is about 50,000 miles. what maintenance service do you recommend?

50,000 miles then all its needed is the oil changed. One thing though, the automatic transmissions on honda's don't last as long as the engines. They seem to last about 120,000 miles on most newer hondas. The manual transmissions are bulletproof though. Other than a clutch every 150,000 miles or so a manual transmission accord will run much longer than the body will last if its driven normally.

The oil light is blinking on a 98 honda accord and the oil is black when i check it....what does this mean?

Black oil needs to be changed immediately. It's possible that even if the oil level is full, it's so thin and worn that it's tripping your Oil Light due to lack of oil pressure.

How do i flush injectors on my 1991 honda accord?

Before performing and injector service which only a shop can perform pull the spark plug wires out of the holes. These engines are know to leak oil down the tube causing a short. If their dry check the plugs for cracks and proper gap. Replace if they have 60,000 miles or more. Also would be wise to replace the wires if their old. Pretty sure on these engines the valves are adjustable also. This is overlooked alot. This could cause poor fuel milage and wear out your catalytic converter sooner.
Now as far as the injector service all you can do is do a fuel sytem additive to the tank.
If the wires have oil on them they will need to be replace as will the plugs. You will also need a valve cover gasket set.

Engine flushing

If you are talking about an engine oil system flush, NO

If you take care of your car, change oil at recomended miles or time, use good quality oil and filters, then a system flush will do nothing for you but lighten your wallet.

2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking

Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Honda accord 1991 model

Sounds like it's burning oil-how many miles on the engine? If it is burning oil, the plugs will not last too long before they have to be replaced or cleaned, due to deposits left on them by the oil. How often do you have to add oil (how many miles do you drive before you have to add a quart?) It probably needs an engine overhaul. Countrycurt0
