Your Guide to 2002 Acura NSX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura NSX to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your NSX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your NSX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2002 Acura NSX!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your NSX running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2002 Acura NSX problems later.

Overview of Essential Acura NSX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2002 Acura NSX for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2002 Acura NSX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura NSX battery. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty NSX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura NSX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2002 Acura NSX running newer, longer. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2002 NSX, check out the information table at the beginning 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 2002 Acura NSX.

2002 Acura NSX Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2002 Acura NSX. Get answers to common Acura NSX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Acura NSX alignment checked? You know your Acura NSX better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Acura NSX need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura NSX engines.
  •  Why are my Acura dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Acura NSX in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
