How Often to Get 2017 Acura MDX Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Acura MDX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2017 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura MDX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 Acura MDX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura MDX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Acura MDX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura MDX 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Acura MDX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
