Your 1999 NSX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

1999 Acura NSX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura NSX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Acura NSX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
