Honda Ridgeline FAQ's
How do I change the oil in my Honda Ridgeline?
To change the oil in your Honda Ridgeline, start by placing a drain pan under the vehicle and removing the oil drain plug. Allow the old oil to fully drain out before replacing the drain plug and tightening it securely. Then, locate the oil filter and remove it using an oil filter wrench. Replace the old oil filter with a new one, making sure to lubricate the rubber gasket on the new filter before installing it. Finally, add the recommended amount and type of oil to the engine, checking the oil level using the dipstick.
How do I check and refill the coolant in my Honda Ridgeline?
To check and refill the coolant in your Honda Ridgeline, start by ensuring the engine is cool. Locate the coolant reservoir under the hood, typically marked with "Engine Coolant" or "Antifreeze." The reservoir should have a minimum and maximum level indicator. If the coolant level is below the minimum mark, carefully remove the cap and add a 50/50 mixture of coolant and distilled water until it reaches the maximum mark. Use a funnel if necessary to avoid spills. After refilling, securely tighten the cap back in place and ensure no coolant is leaking from the system.
How do I check the tire pressure in my Honda Ridgeline?

Remove the valve cap from each tire and firmly press the gauge onto the valve stem. The gauge will display the current tire pressure, which should match the recommended pressure specified in the vehicle's manual. If the pressure is too low, add air until it reaches the recommended level. If it is too high, release air until it reaches the correct pressure. Repeat this process for all four tires, including the spare tire.

Reinsert the dipstick fully, then remove it again to check the fluid level. The fluid should be between the "Low" and "High" marks on the dipstick. If the level is low, add the recommended transmission fluid slowly through the dipstick tube, checking the level frequently until it reaches the correct range.

Replace it with a new fuse of the same amperage rating, ensuring it is fully seated in the fuse box. If the new fuse blows again immediately or after a short period, there may be an underlying electrical issue that requires further investigation.

If the connections are good, test the battery voltage using a multimeter. If the battery is low, try jump-starting the vehicle or replacing the battery if necessary. If the battery is not the issue, it could be a problem with the starter motor or ignition system, and it may be necessary to consult the repair manual for further troubleshooting steps.
What type of engine oil should I use in my Honda Ridgeline?
The recommended engine oil for your Honda Ridgeline will depend on the model year and engine type. Consult the vehicle's owner's manual or the repair manual for the specific oil viscosity and performance specifications.
