what should I check at 100,000 miles on my 2000 Honda Civic, LX?
Open up the owners manual and find the section labeled “service”. You should find a list of things Honda thinks you should check/and or service at 100,000 miles.
The big one around then is to put in a new timing belt. It’s usual to also replace the water pump, timing belt tensioner pulley, maybe some seals, and maybe the drive belts for the alternator, the AC, and the power steering pump, unless they have already been changed.
I have a 1999 Civic EX, and it’s due for its second timing belt, etc. replacement. Your 2000 is quite similar. The maintenance schedule is a smaller booklet than the owners manual.
Thanks for the great advice!
Here’s a link to the manuals for your car, free from Honda.
I can’t speak specifically to your car, but at 100K, if they haven’t already been done
