SERVICING YOUR ENGINE

THE IMPORTANCE OF MAINTENANCE
Good maintenance is essential for safe, economical and trouble-
free operation. It will also help reduce pollution.
Improper maintenance, or failure to correct a
problem before operation, can cause a malfunction in
which you can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the inspection and maintenance
recommendations and schedules in this owner's
manual.
To help you properly care for your engine, the following pages
include a maintenance schedule, routine inspection procedures,
and simple maintenance procedures using basic hand tools. Other
service tasks that are more difficult, or require special tools, are
best handled by professionals and are normally performed by a
Honda technician or other qualified mechanic.
The maintenance schedule applies to normal operating conditions.
If you operate your engine under severe conditions, such as
sustained high-load or high-temperature operation, or use in
unusually wet or dusty conditions, consult your servicing dealer
for recommendations applicable to your individual needs and use.
Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control
devices and systems may be performed by any engine repair
establishment or individual, using parts that are ''certified'' to
EPA standards.
MAINTENANCE SAFETY
Some of the most important safety precautions follow. However,
we cannot warn you of every conceivable hazard that can arise in
performing maintenance. Only you can decide whether or not you
should perform a given task.
Failure to properly follow maintenance instructions
and precautions can cause you to be seriously hurt or
killed.
Always follow the procedures and precautions in this
owner's manual.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Make sure the engine is off before you begin any maintenance
or repairs. This will eliminate several potential hazards:
Carbon monoxide poisoning from engine exhaust.
Be sure there is adequate ventilation whenever you operate
the engine.
Burns from hot parts.
Let the engine and exhaust system cool before touching.
Injury from moving parts.
Do not run the engine unless instructed to do so.
Read the instructions before you begin, and make sure you have
the tools and skills required.
To reduce the possibility of fire or explosion, be careful when
working around gasoline. Use only a nonflammable solvent, not
gasoline, to clean parts. Keep cigarettes, sparks and flames
away from all fuel related parts.
Remember that an authorized Honda servicing dealer knows your
engine best and is fully equipped to maintain and repair it.
To ensure the best quality and reliability, use only new genuine
Honda parts or their equivalents for repair and replacement.
