When Should I Get My Oil Changed?

August 13th, 2018 by

Acura Mechanic Changing Oil

In general, the rule for oil changes has always been to get it done either every three months or 3,000 miles, but thanks to continuing advancements in engineering and technology, most manufacturers recommend changing oil every 5,000 miles.

Syosset drivers also know that every car is different. What’s best for your Acura MDX or other Acura model? Referencing your owner’s manual will give you the most accurate oil change intervals based on make and model. When you’re ready to schedule service, contact the helpful team at the Acura of Huntington service center.

Why are Oil Changes Important?

Oil keeps your vehicle running smoothly, reducing friction between the many moving parts of your Acura vehicle. Over time, though, the lubricant gets dirty, making it less efficient. Waiting too long between oil changes can cause unnecessary engine heating, poor driving performance, and a decrease in efficiency, causing additional wear and tear.

How Do I Change My Oil?

To change your own oil, you must:

  1. Find the right kind of oil for your vehicle
  2. Collect tools for the job
  3. Drain oil from the drain plug
  4. Tighten the drain plug
  5. Change the oil filter
  6. Add the proper amount of new oil
  7. Measure the oil level
