Acura recommends changing your 2022 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, 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.

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 recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2022 MDX. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your MDX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your MDX by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

2022 Acura MDX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura MDX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura MDX engine failure. 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
