2014 Acura MDX Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2014 Acura MDX Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Acura MDX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 2014 MDX’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MDX in the above table. 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura MDX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Acura MDX Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Acura MDX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2014 MDX. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your MDX’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important 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 MDX by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Acura MDX

  • Should I check my Acura MDX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Acura MDX engine failure. 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? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura MDX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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.
