WHAT IS THE SERVICE LIFE OF MY ENGINE COOLANT?

1998 Honda Civic • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 135,250 miles

I have never changed the coolant in my engine. Is that a problem? Everything is running ok, I just don't want any problems. I have a road trip coming up in a few months and want to give the car a once over. What else should I look at while I am at it like hoses and the thermostat. Is this something I can do or should I go to the local car repair shop?

Coolant should be replaced every few years depending on type. Green every 2 yrs orange 5yrs. Check hoses, an dchange filters and oil if not done' recently. Fuel filter as well.
