90,000-Mile Service - Must-Do Procedure List

Reaching the 90,000-mile mark is a significant milestone for your vehicle, and it's time for a comprehensive check-up and maintenance to ensure its continued performance and reliability. The 90,000-mile (aka 90k) service is a crucial part of preventive maintenance that can help detect and address potential issues before they become major problems. Get ready for today's blog because we will take a closer look at everything you need to know about the services and procedures that we categorized as a "must" - here is the list:

Comprehensive Inspection

A thorough inspection is the foundation of the 90,000-mile service. An experienced mechanic should inspect every major system and component of your vehicle, including the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, exhaust, and electrical systems. The goal is to identify any signs of wear, leaks, or damage and address them promptly.

Engine Oil and Filter Change

Changing the engine oil and oil filter is a fundamental maintenance task that should not be overlooked. Fresh engine oil with the right viscosity and a new filter will ensure proper lubrication and protect critical engine components from wear.

Transmission Service

For vehicles with automatic transmissions, it's essential to perform a transmission fluid and filter change. This helps maintain smooth shifting and prevents premature transmission wear. For manual transmissions, a fluid change may also be necessary.

Timing Belt or Timing Chain Replacement

If your vehicle has a timing belt, it's typically due for replacement around the 90,000-mile mark. A worn timing belt can lead to engine damage if it fails. If your vehicle has a timing chain, on the other hand, inspect it for wear and replace it if necessary.

Cooling System Service

The cooling system plays a vital role in regulating engine temperature. Flushing and refilling the cooling system with fresh coolant will help prevent overheating and protect the engine from corrosion. This is also an opportunity to inspect the radiator, water pump, hoses, and thermostat.

Brake System Inspection and Service

A thorough inspection of the brake system is essential for your safety. Brake pads, rotors, calipers, and brake lines should be checked, and worn brake pads should be replaced. Properly functioning brakes are crucial for reliable stopping power.

Spark Plug Replacement

Replacing the spark plugs is necessary to maintain fuel efficiency and smooth engine operation. New spark plugs can also help reduce emissions and improve overall engine performance.

Air Filter and Cabin Air Filter Replacement

Both the engine air filter and the cabin air filter should be replaced to ensure proper air intake and clean air circulation inside the vehicle. A clean air filter promotes optimal engine performance and cleaner air for passengers.

Tire Inspection and Rotation

Tire inspection is essential to check for wear and damage. Rotating the tires ensures even wear and maximizes their lifespan. Properly maintained tires contribute to better fuel efficiency and a smoother ride.

Suspension and Steering System Inspection

Inspecting the suspension and steering components helps identify any wear or damage. Replacing worn components ensures a comfortable and stable ride, contributing to overall vehicle safety.
