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 1987 Legend’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your Legend may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Acura Legend. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1987 Acura Legend Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura Legend? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Legend’s engine to fail. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Legend 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
