Not sure how or where to get your Acura MDX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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.”
Acura recommends changing your 2010 MDX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your MDX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura MDX. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.
Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Acura MDX. Acura has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2010 MDX. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your MDX’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your MDX by considering your driving habits, and odometer.
