What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1996 Acura Integra?

Here’s Why 1996 Acura Integra Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Acura Integra and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Integra has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Integra maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1996 Acura Integra maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Integra's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1996 Acura Integra problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura Integra Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Acura Integra and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Integra’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Acura Integra. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Integra may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura Integra battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Integra) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura Integra could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1996 Acura Integra's engine run smoother. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Integra in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Acura Integra? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura Integra can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Acura Integra steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura Integra's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura Integra services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Acura Integra’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Acura Integra radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1996 Acura Integra maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Acura Integra. Get answers to common Acura Integra maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura Integra? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1996 Integra is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Acura Integra to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura Integra engines.
  •  Why are my Acura dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura Integra, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
