1989 Acura Legend Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 1989 Acura Legend Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Acura Legend? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 1989 Legend’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Legend may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Acura Legend. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Acura Legend?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Acura Legend. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1989 Legend. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Legend’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Legend by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

1989 Acura Legend Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Acura Legend engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura Legend engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura Legend oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
