How Often to Get 2001 Acura NSX Oil Changes

Need more info about 2001 Acura NSX oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Acura recommends changing your 2001 NSX’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your NSX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Acura if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Acura NSX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

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 2001 Acura NSX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2001 NSX. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your NSX's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your NSX by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2001 Acura NSX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Acura NSX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Acura NSX engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
