Thanks for sharing your experiences, Curly, JBeam, JT (Grumpy AC), AZ Nomad, Eric, Tegger, and JYanik. I am going
to hold off. I will continue to also use the checks Tegger
describes, and on which some others of you touch, regarding
looking for leakage when the engine is running.
Eric, I read the background of the Honda/Toyota garage whose
site you linked and studied its maintenance matrix.
Interesting indeed. I am not wild abou the oil change
interval (but let's leave that out of this thread,
controversial as this subject always is!). Everything else
looks pretty consistent with my own feelings and/or
conventional wisdom here. I have bookmarked the site.
I am going to hold off on replacing the wires for at least
another year or until I see some symptoms, as you all
suggest. At about $40 (online OEM sites) per set, and with
the life of the car maybe not "five years more(!)" anyway, I
think it pays to wait. I hear you, JT!
As always, wonderful group, with great community service by
all the regulars here in particular.
