Your 2005 NSX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your NSX 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura NSX. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2005 Acura NSX

  • What can low oil do to my Acura NSX engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, 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.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura NSX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
