What is the maintenance schedule for the 1996 Acura NSX?

Here’s Why 1996 Acura NSX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Acura NSX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your NSX. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine NSX maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Acura NSX!

Acura knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your NSX's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1996 Acura NSX problems.

Overview of Essential Acura NSX Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1996 Acura NSX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your NSX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Acura NSX. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your NSX may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura NSX battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Acura NSX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Acura NSX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 NSX. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Acura NSX.

Maintaining your Acura NSX steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Acura NSX steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Acura NSX's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura NSX services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Acura NSX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Acura NSX? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1996 Acura NSX maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Acura NSX? You know your Acura NSX better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura NSX? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura NSX? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
