Default 2005 Honda Accord w/106,000 miles (almost)

Hi,

I have a 2005 Honda Accord with almost 106,000 miles on it. I'm due
for an oil change soon, but what other service items should I be
considering?

A co-worker of mine suggested the timing belt & water pump. Are these
expensive repairs?

Thanks,

Gary

What does it say in you owner's manual?

The big fat book in your glove box clearly spells this out. At 105,000 or 7
yrs (or whatever your book actually says, my older Accord was a different
year) you are due of the timing belt change. Usual wisdom is to do the water
pump at the same time.

How much it will cost depends on if you are going to a dealer, independent
and where you are located.

As others have said, read the manual. And, your car has a timing chain, not
a belt, and doesn't need to be replaced, and likely doesn't need any
adjusting.

Only if it's a 4-cylinder!

AH! As is mine! (The 6-cylinder world is to me a "foreign country.") ;-)

I've never owned a six of any kind.

I've owned all kinds of 4-cylinder cars, one V8, and one rotary, but no
sixes.

By rotary, do you mean as in Wankel? I often wondered what they were like
in use. How did you find it?

The very same. I had a very early 13B in a 1974 Mazda RX-4.

Exactly as smooth as they claimed. Very strong from about 4,000rpm up to
the rev limit of 7K, and beyond; in their day, rotary cars were very quick
compared to the competition. Lousy on gas. I still have my gas-fillup
booklet, and I see I never got much more than 19mpg.

There were certain...quirks...that had more to do with the engine controls
than the engine itself. The quirks were a bit annoying but, for me, made
the car interesting to own.

Much more expensive if you don't do it. 7 years or 105k miles for
timing belt for this year. Pump is done not on a regular schedule,
but as a convenience, since it is easy to access when changing the
belt.
