Acura MDX Oil Type: Viscosity, Quantity & Drain Bolt Tightening Torque.
Oil is a major contributor to your Acura MDX engine's performance and longevity. If you drive the vehicle with insufficient or deteriorated oil, the engine may fail or be damaged.
This seal indicates the oil is energy conserving and that it meets the American Petroleum Institute’s latest requirements. Use a Genuine Acura Motor Oil or another commercial engine oil of suitable viscosity for the ambient temperature as shown.
Synthetic oil: You may also use synthetic motor oil if it is labeled with the API Certification Seal and is the specified viscosity grade.
We recommend that you check the engine oil level every time you refuel. Park your Acura MDX on level ground. Wait approximately three minutes after turning the engine off before you check the oil.
