Acura recommends having your 1998 Acura NSX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your NSX in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your NSX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura NSX. 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.

1998 Acura NSX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura NSX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much 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. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Acura NSX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
