When was the last time you replaced the belt and checked the idler pulleys? Most common cause of this problem is an old belt and/or worn idler pulleys and tensioner arm.

Depending on usage, should be checked every year and changed every 3-4 years.

Not full, should be a mark on the side of the reservoir. Don’t know what Honda uses, another question for your dealer when you ask about specs.
