What is a serpentine belt? Honda vehicles are equipped with a serpentine belt, also known as a drive belt. By “snaking” around the various pulleys, both sides of a serpentine belt can grip and be used to drive components such as the alternator, power brakes, power steering pump, water pump, and air conditioning compressor.

How long do serpentine belts last? Generally, serpentine belts last around 5 years or up to 100,000 kilometers before replacement becomes necessary. Belt wear is difficult to see by just looking at the belt. Our Honda Certified technicians can measure the depth of the grooves in the underside of the belt to determine whether the belt should be replaced.

How is this corrected? Serpentine belts that show chunking or cracks need to be replaced immediately, as they will soon fail. Serpentine belt failure typically means loss of engine cooling, loss of battery charging, loss of power steering assist, and loss of air conditioning. In short, a belt failure means a severe vehicle breakdown.

Your Honda’s engine has an intake air cleaner which contains an air filter element that prevents foreign materials such as dust and debris from entering the cylinders. If foreign materials make their way into the engine, they cause internal damage and premature wear.

Whenever the engine is running, the air filter is removing and collecting foreign materials from the intake air and will eventually accumulate enough that replacement will be necessary. A clogged air filter affects engine performance and can increase fuel consumption and contributes to engine oil contamination.

An engine air filter inspection and replacement are required at specific maintenance intervals, as indicated in the Owner’s Manual or by the Honda factory-recommended maintenance schedule. If you often drive in dusty conditions, more frequent replacement may be necessary.

We can provide and install the correct, Genuine Honda filter for your vehicle.

What are shocks & struts? The purpose of shocks & struts is to maximize your tires’ contact with the road, especially on poor road conditions and in severe braking situations. Honda has optimized the design of their shocks & struts to handle most road conditions while providing a comfortable ride – although safety is always the primary concern.

How long do shocks & struts last? Over 120,000 kilometers or 7 years driven, your shocks & struts will have cycled over 112,500,000 times – reducing their ability to safely keep your tires in proper contact with the road.
