How Often to Change 2004 Acura NSX Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura NSX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2004 NSX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Acura NSX

  • Should I check my Acura NSX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your NSX’s 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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Acura NSX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
