Question 50K mile tune-up???

So Im about to hit 50K miles and Im sure there is some tune-up procedure that needs to be done...plugs, fuel filter, etc. If yall could let me know what would be good to do for this tune-up, that would be great. I am due for an oil change so I plan on doin this all at once. O yea, I have an R18 if that makes an difference on what needs to be done. Thanks.

Read the documentation that comes with your car. It should have a detailed service schedule.

Definitely have already thought of that, the only problem is that when I bought the car it didn't come the owners manual or any of those books...thats why I'm on here asking that question. So back to my question, what would be some good things to do for my 50K mile tune-up?

I did Valve adjust and oil change for 50k. I had the tranny fluid changed back at 40k so I was good there. The above mentioned and check fluids and wear items ie. brakes, hoses, and tires and you should be good to go.

I am obviously an illiterate poster, but I tried looking for the maintenance schedule in the book. I haven't looked at it recently, but I remember that the MM basically will tell you when to do certain things. In my old car, the manual gave a specific mileage and service that needed to be done at the time. Is this the same for the newer civics?

You should be able to find the owner's manual online by searching this site or another search engine. Lots of needed info. in there.

But to answer your question, you should only change tranny fluid if you haven't already, and change brake fluid if the car is 3 years old (and every 3 years thereafter). Also, inspect all brake lines and components, suspension, steering gearbox and drive line components, etc. just in case you'll need that warranty before 60K. All of that info. can be found in the service manual listed in the sticky thread. Just don't skimp on your oil and rotations. We all know how hard our R18 models are on tires; I rotate my Michelin Primacy's every 5K and still have some road noise the first couple hundred miles after rotating....
