Anyone over 300K with an automatic, what other maintenance have you done besides fluids, tires and brakes?
Anything else specifically? Also is your ATF routine 30K drain and fill and 5-8K on oil changes? Have you ever touched that inline ATF filter?
Any detailed log for maintenance would be much appreciated.
Thanks, for last 140K have you done any major work or it's all with the dealership?I cannot account for the first 170k miles, but in the 140k I've put on the car, i have not touched the ATF. The dealership has every record, i'll scoop them up next time im in to verify. Oil changes are set for every 3k, at which point it takes roughly half a quart to a quart to top it off. I'll go another couple weeks before i get it changed.
Nothing major in my mind, but the most expensive was getting a new starter and A/C compressor (I took it to a different shop for the A/C cause the dealership shop rate is ridiculous)Thanks, for last 140K have you done any major work or it's all with the dealership?
Any sensors or anything else?
Thanks, my car is completely stock. Curious what was the mileage when starter and AC compressor gave up?Nothing major in my mind, but the most expensive was getting a new starter and A/C compressor (I took it to a different shop for the A/C cause the dealership shop rate is ridiculous)
I did have one other annoying issue that stemmed from a CAI, TBS and tune. MD requires routine emissions testing, and somehow the mods I installed eventually caused an emissions leak. Went down a rabbit trail trying to fix it, replaced the charcoal canister as well as the EGR valve. Eventually led them to replacing my ECU (twice). The last time, i left the stock tune on and was able to pass emissions. Then I uninstalled everything to save on the headache for next time. That wasn't a terribly expensive journey though.. everything else has been great with car.
The starter went about 3 years ago around 250k, and the AC was a year later. I should clarify on the AC Compressor... it was the AC clutch that actually failed and not the compressor. In trying to save a buck, me and a buddy tried replacing just the AC clutch... Well we ended up puncturing the compressor lol so it all got replaced.Thanks, my car is completely stock. Curious what was the mileage when starter and AC compressor gave up?
Being stock means, hopefully don't have to worry about later issue. Fingers crossed though :vtec:
How is your arm rest?still broken? You can have my factory one if you like ? i replaced mine with a black one and it's lying around it's grey and free ? hope your civic is live and well ? gives me faith for my manual 2010 lx coupe!We do medical deliveries to nursing homes. My girlfriend does about 80k and I do about 125k miles a year. I still have the original seat but I had to replace the shifter knob a couple times and the steering wheel once and my center console arm rest is busted. lol
So after seeing a video on someone sawing the "filter" in half, I saw that it is in fact a filter and not a steel mesh. Ordered one and it is sitting in my basement until I get to it. Egg on my face. Still, I'm at 290,000 miles. Lately, my alternator is dead and I replaced the a/c compressor last year. Everything is fine on mine so far.I'm at 240,000 miles now. I NEVER touched the ATF filter. I don't plan on touching it unless my tranny starts to do funny things. Besides, the "filter" is actually a metal mesh. Unless something BREAKS, I don't think replacing the "filter" is worth it.
I used to have a Grand Cherokee ............... Dodge? Wow, I don't need to say about how unreliable Chrysler products (and Heeps) are.EdNaviEX- Well at least the alternator is pretty easy on our cars. Not like some cars where you have to crawl under the engine to remove it.
My 08 EX is about to roll over 83,000 miles. WOOOO big miles big miles!
I do not think my old 1981 Dodge Aries I drove in high school made it that far before everything started breaking.
Damn I guess you guys were hating life when Trump took away the mileage writeoff in 2018 on the Unreimbursed employee expenses. I work for Domino's and was writing off 20K miles a year, over $10K. (Unless you are self-employed,in which case I think you can still write mileage off.)We do medical deliveries to nursing homes. My girlfriend does about 80k and I do about 125k miles a year.
