How Often to Get 2007 Acura RDX Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2007 Acura RDX? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 2007 RDX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RDX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your RDX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura RDX. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Acura RDX Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2007 Acura RDX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2007 Acura RDX vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your RDX’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2007 Acura RDX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura RDX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura RDX engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Acura RDX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
