Why You Should Get Your Oil Changed

Oil changes are crucial to maintaining the smooth operation of your engine.  Over time, the oil and other fluids become contaminated or low.  Dirty oil or not having enough oil can cause excessive wear and tear or damage to your engine.  It's important to keep up with your regular oil changes at the recommended intervals.  The recommendation for changing your vehicle's engine oil used to be every 3,000-miles, but now we have better oil that can last longer and avoids corrosion, so you don't need to change it as often.  Acura models typically need oil changes every 6,000 to 12,000-miles, and the newer vehicles have a maintenance monitoring system to take the guesswork out of your maintenance schedule.


You can check the condition of your oil by looking at the oil dipstick under the hood yourself.  Be sure that your Acura is completely cooled and parked on a level surface.  You will need a rag or paper towel to catch any drips. Pull the dipstick out and wipe it clean with the rag or paper towel, then reinsert the dipstick back into the original position.  Pull the dipstick out a second time and read the oil level markers at the bottom, taking care not to spill or drip oil onto the other components.  You'll be able to see the oil level by measuring where the oil line is on the stick.  Next, you can wipe some of the oil off and rub it between your fingers or feel for grime and sludge. If the oil is black or feels grainy, it's time for an oil change.


Types of Oil for Your Acura

We offer several different types of oil changes: Full Synthetic Oil Change, Semi-Synthetic Oil change, or Premium Oil change.  The full synthetic oil change is the most expensive because synthetic oil is of higher quality and lasts longer.  Our Premium Oil change uses only conventional oil and is suitable for your Acura, but may need to be changed sooner than when we use synthetic oil.
