Honestly, I haven't checked my cooling system since the day I got my timing belt and water pump done. That was at 136k miles and my car is creeping on 212k miles. When that was done, the shop topped off all the lost coolant.
The last oil change I did about 4k miles ago (I do my oil changes every 7k on full synthetic), the oil looked dark brown like it's supposed to.
I have filled it up since and i'll just keep an eye on it.
I also want to do some regular maintenance, and I was going to do a coolant system flush next weekend and replace the coolant with Honda blue coolant. My thing is, IDK how to do the flush service. I presume I need some sort of machine?
During this process I am also planning on replacing the thermostat along with the upper and lower hoses of the coolant system to and from the radiator and engine block.
