120 000 Miles on my Prelude , What should I be checking?

Hi, My prelude 2001 SE Has 120 000 miles on the speedometer, Beside the timing belt , anything else should I be looking at?


There is a problem on the car too. Everytime i drive around 80 mph, A boiling,bubbling noise occurs on the driver side next to the engine. Anybody have the same problem?

Re: 120 000 Miles on my Prelude , What should I be checking?

From mitchells recommended maintenance page for severe conditions, 120,000 miles. For a more specific maintenance schedule you need to buy or download a prelude owners manual.

adjust drive belts
check parking brake
inspect brake hoses
inspect cooling system hoses and clamps
inspect exhaust system
inspect fluid and lubricant levels
inspect front & rear brakes
inspect fuel lines & connections
inspect suspension components
inspect vehicle underbody
replace air cleaner element (cabin air filter)
replace ATTS unit fluid (if applicable)
replace transaxle fluid/oil
replace balancer belt/timing belt
replace engine oil/filter
replace coolant
rotate tires



There are other issues you should check and may have to clean/change as part of good maintenance. Some are:

Check battery
Check and clean vtec solonoid screen
check and clean IACV screen
Replace EGR gasket, clean EGR valve and clean/replace EGR port plugs
Check and/or replace PCV valve

Thats just a short list....



If you are leaking motor oil you can check out this link to find out where and how to fix most common leaks on our cars.

Hope that helps.
