What Is an Oil Change?

If you’re a first-time driver and are unfamiliar with oil changes and what they do, we’re here to explain! Oil changes are vital to your car’s health. The purpose is to replace the engine oil in your car once you hit a certain number of miles or the oil hits a certain percentage with clean oil. As you continue to drive, oil will get dirty and become less effective.

The engine in your Acura will also be cleaned and wiped of any buildup or excess oil, ensuring optimal performance.


Why Do I Need an Oil Change?

Mechanics performing an oil changeThere are many answers to this question, but the most concise one is that it will help to keep your car running smoothly for a long time. The engine works in conjunction with so many of the other components under the hood of your car. Therefore, making sure your engine is properly maintained also means you’re ensuring everything else is up to snuff.

Another benefit to having your oil changed is that it improves fuel economy, as the engine will not have to work as hard to perform. This puts less strain on it, so you’ll be able to drive long distances on a single tank of gas.

As is the case with many routine maintenance services, getting your oil changed when the time comes can wind up saving you money in the long run. If you were to hold off on getting your oil changed for a lengthy period, it can cause many different problems in your Acura, which can result in more extensive (and expensive) repairs.

Signs I Need an Oil Change
