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 2019 MDX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2019 Acura MDX Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura MDX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Acura MDX engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Acura MDX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional 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.
