How Often to Change 2019 Acura ILX Oil

Need more info about 2019 Acura ILX oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 2019 Acura ILX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your ILX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Acura if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura ILX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Acura ILX Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2019 Acura ILX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2019 Acura ILX vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within 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 free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your ILX by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2019 Acura ILX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura ILX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 ILX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
