What to Know About 2008 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RL to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RL. 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 2008 Acura RL maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 2008 Acura RL problems.

Overview of Essential Acura RL Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2008 Acura RL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Acura RL. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your RL may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura RL battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty RL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 help your 2008 Acura RL's engine run smoother. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2008 RL, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2008 Acura RL.

Maintaining your Acura RL steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Acura RL steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura RL's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Acura RL maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Acura RL cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Acura RL radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2008 Acura RL maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

2008 Acura RL Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2008 Acura RL. Get answers to common Acura RL maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura RL? 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 should I switch my Acura RL to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura RL engines.
  •  Why are my Acura dashboard lights on? 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
