My Honda Fit Service light came on yesterday...

... and I was expecting it to as the oil life was down to 20%.

Well it hit 15% yesterday... and I like to do my oil changes a little early, so it’s time now to get it done.


But the Service Minder indicator also told me I have to also change the air intake filter (did that recently so I don’t have to worry about it), spark plugs (already have them) and... a valve adjustment.

Apparently the Fit has valves that have to be adjusted every so often and it’s apparently very important for ensuring the engine will last. So... I’m going to do my first valve adjustment ever very soon... after I get myself a feeler gauge set.


Already studied this youtube video:

It doesn’t seem hard to do... just time consuming if you care about doing it right. .
