2010 Acura RL Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2010 Acura RL Oil Changes

Need more info about 2010 Acura RL oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2010 RL’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your RL may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, enjoy off-roading, 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.

2010 Acura RL Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Acura RL engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your RL’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
