March 11th, 2020 by

Taking care of your Acura vehicle has many benefits, including keeping your investment running as it should long after other vehicles have fallen by the wayside. Whether your daily drive simply takes you from Clovis to Madera, or you’re an adventurer who spends their free time exploring Yosemite in your Acura, regular maintenance should be at the top of your to-do list. That’s why it’s important to understand what Acura B1 and B2 service entail and what your Acura service codes mean to easily recognize vehicle issues and have them taken care of right away. Let the Acura service team at Fresno Acura provide everything you need to keep moving on Visalia and Hanford roads.

What Do Acura Service Codes Mean?

When you take a look at your front dashboard, you’ll see many spots for warning lights and indicators to help you easily monitor the condition of your vehicle. This can be displayed with a letter and sometimes a number to signify the importance of the issue or problem. Main codes will appear as “A” or “B” and will show whether your vehicle needs a simple oil change or a full oil service. Your main code will also appear along with a numbered sub code of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 to let you know the exact service your vehicle needs.

What is B Service for Acura?

Acura “B” service covers the routine tasks you’ll need to perform to keep your Acura running smoothly. These jobs include an oil and filter change, brake service, and a multi-point inspection performed by an Acura-certified mechanic. Your Acura Technician will have a complete list of necessary services and intervals for your model and trim, so you won’t have any surprises coming your way.

What is Included in B1 Service?

B1 services cover basic maintenance tasks including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Engine oil and filter change
  • Front and rear brake inspection
  • Parking brake adjustment (as needed)
  • Fluid check and refill
  • Tire rotation and check

Your service technician will also inspect and potentially recommend repairs for the following systems:

  • Tie rod ends
  • Suspension
  • Exhaust
  • Fuel System
  • Driveshaft boots
  • Steering gear box

What is Included in B2 Service?

The B2 service includes the same basic maintenance tasks performed in the B1 maintenance package with some additions. Those additions include replacement of the air cleaner element, dust and pollen filter, drive belt inspection, and of course, any other maintenance tasks necessary to ensure optimal performance. These services are especially essential if you are sensitive to the smoke from the recent fires south of Madero, as they help to clean the cabin air, so you can travel more comfortably.
