2020 Acura MDX Oil Change Service

When to Change 2020 Acura MDX Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura MDX’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2020 MDX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your MDX in the above table. Your MDX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 terrain, 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Acura MDX?

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 2020 MDX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your MDX’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Acura MDX

  • What can low oil do to my Acura MDX engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Acura MDX engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
