Acura recommends having your 2001 Acura Integra’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Integra may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura Integra. 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 Integra Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Acura Integra. Acura has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2001 Integra. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Integra’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Integra by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2001 Acura Integra Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura Integra? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura Integra engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura Integra oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
