How Often to Change 1991 Acura NSX Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura NSX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Acura recommends having your 1991 Acura NSX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your NSX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura NSX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Acura NSX Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Acura NSX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1991 Acura NSX vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your NSX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your NSX by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Acura NSX

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura NSX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Acura NSX engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Acura NSX 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura NSX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
