What to Know About 1996 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RL to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your RL has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get RL maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Acura RL!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your RL running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1996 Acura RL problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RL Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1996 Acura RL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RL's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1996 Acura RL be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura RL battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RL stranded. Your Acura RL could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Acura RL running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 RL. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Acura RL? We can help with that, too!
