2017 Acura NSX Oil Change Service

When to Change 2017 Acura NSX Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Acura NSX? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Acura recommends changing your 2017 NSX’s oil at regular 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 knocking sounds 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, frequent dusty roads, 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2017 Acura NSX?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Acura NSX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2017 Acura NSX vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your NSX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your NSX by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

2017 Acura NSX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Acura NSX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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? 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
