Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Acura ILX

  • What can low oil do to my Acura ILX engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Acura ILX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura ILX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
