Acura Oil Changes near Durham - Cary - Chapel Hill

Whether you're driving a brand-new Acura, a well-traveled truck, or a beloved old station wagon, they're all run by essentially the same piece of machinery: an engine, with pistons moving around 2000-3000 rotations per minute and belts moving at lightning speed, whose components are creating a lot of friction and a lot of heat. While there are systems in place to help cool the engine, your lubrication system is one of the most important.

This system circulates oil throughout the engine to lubricate moving parts and reduce friction, which thereby reduces heat, and even slows down the process of wear-and-tear that all engines suffer from.

It may seem like magic--but it's still just a mortal substance. Engine oil needs to be changed on a fairly strict schedule to be effective.

The Benefits of Routine Oil Changes

  • Smoother engine performance
  • Longer life for your engine
  • Better fuel economy
  • Cleaner engine--less build-up of debris
  • Lowered emissions

Follow the Maintenance Minder for Your Acura Oil Change Interval

Your recent-model-year Acura includes an intelligent, dynamic system called Maintenance Minder, that uses real data and your own driving habits to track the "life" of your oil and to let you know exactly when it's the right time to get an oil change for your exact environment/car/driving style.

Oil change intervals can vary from as little as 3,000 or miles to as much as 12,000 miles or more, depending on your situation. If, however, you've gone a full year (12 months) between oil changes, it's recommended that you change your oil for best results.

If your older-model-year Acura does not use this system (don't assume that it does), your current vehicle is not an Acura or Honda and doesn't have a system like this, or you put a lot of miles on your car in a twelve-month period, contact the techs at Hendrick Acura Southpoint to learn more about the optimal oil change schedule for your exact car, truck, or SUV and for any other questions you may have from brake repair to tire rotations and battery service, we are here to help.
