Acura recommends changing your 2005 RL’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RL in the above table. Your RL may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

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.

2005 Acura RL Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Acura RL engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura RL engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura RL oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
