Service by Rallye Acura

The best way to keep your Acura running smoothly as long as possible is to follow the recommended service schedule for your make and model, which includes staying on top of your recommended Acura oil change intervals. But what type of oil does an Acura take, what is the benefit of an Acura oil change, and how often should you have one performed? Learn more about Acura oil change types and frequency with Rallye Acura. Then, contact our service team in Roslyn for assistance!

What Does an Acura Oil Change Do?

Oil changes are one of the most important routine service items. Engine oil lubricates your vehicle’s internal combustion engines, reducing friction and wear on moving parts, and fights the buildup of sludge inside the engine. Without an oil change, your vehicle’s engine will overheat and fail. Not only will this total your car, but it can put you and others in danger on Manhasset roads.

What Is the Correct Acura Oil Type?

But what type of oil does an Acura take? The recommended Acura oil type is Genuine Acura Motor Oil. You can also use Premium Grade OW-20 Detergent Oil with an API Certification Seal.

What Are the Benefits of an Acura Oil Change?

By using the right Acura oil type and staying on top of your Acura oil changes, you’ll not only prevent overheating your engine, but you’ll improve fuel economy and acceleration on Garden City streets while increasing the lifespan of your engine and its many components. This will result in fewer repair costs down the line, and if you can demonstrate that your vehicle has been maintained in accordance with Acura recommended service intervals, it will have a much higher resale value.

Knowing When Your Car Needs an Oil Change

Experts recommend getting an Acura oil change at least twice per year. Whether you drive your car daily in Glen Cove or only occasionally, oil changes are crucial to good maintenance. Oil gradually collects debris as you drive your car, and oil that sits in the oil tank for months will still break down over time. If you use your car for racing, off-roading, towing, or any commercial purpose, it may need oil changes more often. How can you tell if your car needs an oil change between regular service visits? With a few simple checks, you can keep tabs on oil quality yourself at home:

  • Refer to your owner’s manual for your car’s oil check procedure, and use the dipstick to check the oil level.
  • If oil is low, remove the oil tank cap and slowly add new oil a little at a time, re-checking with the dipstick after each addition.
  • Inspect the oil that you see on the dipstick for quality. If it’s a very dark, almost-black oil color, or you notice small metal particles mixed with the oil, your car is due for an oil change.
  • Schedule a service appointment for an Acura oil change at your local dealership!
