How Often to Get 2000 Acura RL Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2000 Acura RL? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2000 RL’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RL in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your RL 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura RL. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2000 Acura RL Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura RL? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura RL engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura RL oil at home? 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. 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 RL spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
