2019 Acura RDX Oil Change

When to Change 2019 Acura RDX Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Acura RDX? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2019 RDX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your RDX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, 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 2019 Acura RDX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2019 RDX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate 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, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your RDX by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2019 Acura RDX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura RDX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your RDX’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
