1987 Acura Integra Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura Integra? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Integra’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura Integra oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 Integra spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
