2014 Acura RLX Oil Change Service

When to Change 2014 Acura RLX Engine Oil

Need more info about 2014 Acura RLX oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Acura recommends having your 2014 Acura RLX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RLX in the above table. Your RLX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Acura RLX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Acura RLX Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Acura RLX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2014 RLX. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your RLX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your RLX by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Acura RLX

  • Should I check my Acura RLX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura RLX 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 RLX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
