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.
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.
What motor oils are available at Firestone Complete Auto Care? We stock outstanding motor oils because that's what your engine deserves. Check your owner's manual and talk with a technician to select the right Acura RLX oil, whether it's Quaker State® Advanced Durability™ conventional oil, Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® motor oil, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology, or Shell Rotella® heavy-duty engine oil. There are plenty of motor oils on the market today, so why do we prefer these brands? They are champions.
