How Often to Change 1999 Acura SLX Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura SLX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Your 1999 SLX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your SLX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Acura if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura SLX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1999 Acura SLX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura SLX? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura SLX engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 SLX exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
