What to Know About 2000 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RL to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, 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. Just follow your 2000 Acura RL maintenance schedule!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RL's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2000 Acura RL problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura RL

Bring your 2000 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your RL. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2000 Acura RL. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RL stranded. Your Acura RL won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2000 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 2000 RL. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2000 Acura RL? We can help with that, too!

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Acura RL's steering system require regular maintenance.

2000 Acura RL Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2000 Acura RL. Get answers to common Acura RL maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Acura RL alignment checked? You know your Acura RL better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Acura RL need high mileage oil? If your Acura RL has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura RL, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
