2013 Acura ILX Oil Change

How Often to Get 2013 Acura ILX Oil Changes

Need more info about 2013 Acura ILX oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2013 ILX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your ILX 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 notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura ILX. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2013 Acura ILX?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Acura ILX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2013 ILX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your ILX’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your ILX by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

2013 Acura ILX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Acura ILX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your ILX’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura ILX 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
