    Default Honda city maintaince help required.

    Hello frends. I own 2011 city. I purchased at at 52k ODO and now its 80k almost. I have never done any throttle cleaning or tunning etx as i have never faced any problem. Average is good. Pick. Fuel consumption everything is fine.
    Do i still need to go for tunning. Tappets adjustment. Throttle cleaning. Plug change etc ??
    I have visited honda moters and they suggest do everything along with gear oil change brake service. Fuel filger change and almost a bill of 20k. I said what change i might get after investing so much. The answer was satisfaction. I said i m already satisfied.

    Please suggest me.

    just change filters oil etc on time.....tappet setting on 20-25000 km ....no need of throttle body cleaning un neccesarily......however u have to do tyre rotation after every 10000 km wid alignment for even wear of tyres......gear oil shud be changed after 40000 km in case of auto and 50000km in case of manual tranny.

    - What is your car average?
    - Have you ever cleaned the throttle body or catalytic converters?
    - do you plan to keep this car for another few years?

    Currently. Its giving me 16kmpl o.n long with 100% AC and 14.5 on local with AC 100%. My plan is to sell this car by end of this year or start of next year. Previously car was totally honda maintained till 52k odo from day one.
    Using Shell synthetic oil and changing it every 4k
    Also no catalytic issue as there is absolutely no sound from exhaust.
    Actaully i have a feeling that agar masla nai karahe aur mainay kisi mechanic say chirwa liya to roz roz workshop hi jana parega.

    Then there is no need to spend 20K on it. Get all the Oils/Filters changed, brakes serviced and plugs cleaned.

    If you ever need help cleaning throttle body or cat, this will help:

    There was no noise from the exhaust before or after the cleanup. Car is 81K driven. I cleaned them because it has to be done every 40K considering the fuel quality of Pakistan. It did improve the pick and economy a great deal. I also used to think my car does not need any work and gets 14+ average anyway but when the mechanic showed me the condition of converters and throttle body... rest you already know.
