What to Know About 1999 Acura SLX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura SLX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your SLX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine SLX maintenance. Just follow your 1999 Acura SLX maintenance schedule!

Acura knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your SLX's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1999 Acura SLX problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura SLX

Bring your 1999 Acura SLX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your SLX. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1999 Acura SLX be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your SLX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura SLX battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty SLX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura SLX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1999 Acura SLX's engine run smoother. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 1999 SLX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1999 Acura SLX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura SLX can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Acura SLX suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Acura SLX's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Acura SLX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Acura SLX cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Acura SLX? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1999 Acura SLX maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • 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 does my Acura SLX need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura SLX? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura SLX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
