Acura recommends changing your 2002 NSX’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your NSX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your NSX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2002 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 runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura NSX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura NSX oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
