Here’s Why 1997 Acura NSX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Acura NSX and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your NSX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 1997 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your NSX's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Acura NSX problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Acura NSX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1997 Acura NSX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your NSX. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Acura NSX? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura NSX battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your NSX stranded. Your Acura NSX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1997 Acura NSX engine. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 NSX in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1997 Acura NSX.

Maintaining your Acura NSX steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Acura NSX steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura NSX's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Acura NSX maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Acura NSX’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. 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 1997 Acura NSX maintenance.

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

1997 Acura NSX Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1997 Acura NSX. Get answers to common Acura NSX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura NSX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • 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.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura NSX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
