When to Change 2020 Acura ILX Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura ILX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 2020 ILX’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your ILX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your ILX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, 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, 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.

2020 Acura ILX Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura ILX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your ILX’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
