2017 Acura RLX Oil Change

How Often to Get 2017 Acura RLX Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Acura RLX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 2017 RLX’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your RLX in the above table. No matter the mileage, your RLX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura RLX. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Acura RLX?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Acura RLX motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2017 RLX. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your RLX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your RLX by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Acura RLX Oil Change Questions

  • 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 components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura RLX engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura RLX oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 RLX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
