Overview of Essential Acura SLX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Acura SLX and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your SLX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Acura SLX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura SLX battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your SLX stranded. Your Acura SLX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1996 Acura SLX's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 SLX.

Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Acura SLX.

A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1996 Acura SLX maintenance and repairs.

Questions About 1996 Acura SLX Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Acura SLX. Get answers to common Acura SLX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura SLX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Acura SLX to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura SLX engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Acura SLX to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
