2014 Acura ILX Oil Change Service

When to Change 2014 Acura ILX Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Acura ILX? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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.”

Acura recommends changing your 2014 ILX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your ILX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Acura ILX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Acura ILX?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2014 Acura ILX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2014 Acura ILX vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your ILX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your ILX by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2014 Acura ILX Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura ILX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura ILX engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura ILX oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
