thank you for saving me over 600 dollars at this timeIs the engine running smooth? No weird noises? Are you having any check engine lights? Decrease in fuel economy?
if it were me I’d skip the valve adjustment. If you have problems further down the road you can always have it done. It typically doesn’t need to be done until 200k miles. As for spark plugs, if you can do them yourself then definitely do that. You’ll save $300
thank you for the valuable info.I have only done them on one car in my extensive history of vehicles. And one of the head bolts stripped the head while following the recommended torque procedure.
Honestly, on modern cars, I only go into valve covers if absolutely needed, otherwise if it runs fine and you don't have any codes I don't see a reason to do it.
Spend $1-2K to keep the old vehicle going for another 7-years/105K-miles and the wife will have nothing to show for it to the friends and neighbors.My 2015 Pilot has 80k on it so I’m not far from the dreaded 105k service. My wife wants no part of doing that and would rather have a new vehicle. Me, aside from not wanting to spend so much money on a new Honda, I do not like the new body styling on the new Pilots so I’m inclined to keep what I have. I guess we’ll see in about 20,000 miles!
