How Often to Get 1999 Acura CL Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1999 Acura CL? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Acura recommends having your 1999 Acura CL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your CL may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Acura if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura CL. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1999 Acura CL Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura CL? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your CL’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura CL oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura CL spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
