See: Civic @ 100,000 for 72,000 miles ago.

Was time for a major service. Had a slight leak into spark plug tube #1 so I figured Id go ahead and check the valves while I was in there. (all fine)

Oil changed (0/20AP and a genuine 20,000 Ultra)
Transmission flushed (4 drain and fills per Honda Service news procedure DW1)
Coolant changed (Honda Type 2)
PS fluid changed (Honda PSF)
Tires ordered. (Premier A/S)

Looks exactly like it did at 100k which is a good thing! Should continue to be a great car for a long time. Thanks for sharing.

Ive been stretching them closer to 10,000 and either running a Honda filter for one OCI or a Ultra for two.

From about 30,000 on it has been M1 5/20 (mostly) or 0/20 with only a couple of exceptions (5/30). For the first 30,000 it was Mobil Clean 5000 5/20 (which was a blend IIRC) and either a Honda or Purolator filter.

Very clean. I'd give anything to see those piston ringlands.

What do you use to clean the outside of the engine? Simple Green or something?
