Tire rotation, air filter, breather element, Inspections: Timing belt for wear and tear other belts be it V-belts or Serpentine radiator fluid (older than 3 years needs a flush and fill) transmission fluid and filter change. if its a manual transmission then change the gear oil Battery inspection Ignition system--- Spark plug gaps,wires,cap and rotor and coil inspection. Motor Mounts inspection Other things good for a car of that high of mileage are flushing out the old brake fluid and filling with new....same for power steering. mostly inspections Last but not least... put a can of Seafoam* into your gas tank and drive it on the highway for at least 30-45 minutes. congrats on your high mileage honda :-]

Maintenance Required is a light that comes on after a predetermined number of miles. For example, if the maintenance schedule Honda set for the car calls for an oil change at 3000 miles, a new fan belt at 6000 miles, and another oil change at 9000 miles, then the maintenance required light will come on every 3000 miles and stay on until it is reset by the dealer. Some people, especially those that do their own regular maintenance but don't have a way to reset the light themselves, find this an annoyance. But others find it useful and take their cars in to the dealer every time the light comes on, and they rest assured that all of the regular maintenance is always done on time.
What this light does NOT do however is signal that there is anything immanently wrong with your car. It is not a "Check Engine" light (that's the one you should worry about if it ever comes on), but merely a reminder for you to do preventative maintenance. That doesn't mean you should *ignore* it, per se, as you want to make sure you have your car on some kind of maintenance schedule, even if yours is not as strict as Honda's. But there is no need to panic.
The tranny fluid on most cars and trucks is 30,000 miles ,as far as the engine oil if you use a good oil brand like Honda motor oil or even like Motorcraft they are a synthectic blend 5w20 and you can go 5,000 miles between oil changes.Now if your useing regular motor oil change it every 3,000 miles.Hope that helps
change the fluid and clean filter every 15000miles, oil change is every 3000 miles and tuneups are usually every 100000 miles. air filter is done every 30000 miles.
feul filter every 30000 miles as well.
