Read your owners manual, service schedules are in there. In your case, look at the TIME requirements as well as MILEAGE (km).

If you don't have one you might be able to get it from the Honda owners' site. I know that it works for USA owners, not sure where you are from.



Anyway, your V has a B Series engine with a timing belt. Make sure that it is changed. Other fluids (trans, brake, etc) need to be replaced at that age for sure.

You are also well-advised to check valve clearances.

Filters (cabin and engine air) can be checked to make sure they are clean.

Enjoy your V! A low-mileage one like that is a Good Find! :Happy:

Welcome to CRVOC, Hussein!
Glad to see another first gen with very low mileage. There’s a lot of information we’ve collect over time here. I learned a lot from this forum from the beginning, now helping others that wondered those same questions just in a different time period. Here’s things I normally check to keep my first gen 2001 EX rolling daily; Engine Oil, Transmission Fluid, Rear Differential Fluid, Brake Fluid, Coolant, Power Steering.

Like Carbuff2 says, timing belt and valve clearances are crucial.

Please post pictures when you can!
