It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2019 RLX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2019 Acura RLX

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura RLX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your RLX’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura RLX oil at home? 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 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
