Montgomeryville Acura is not just a place to purchase a quality vehicle for an affordable price. It’s also the perfect spot to get your vehicle serviced. The 2014 Acura RLX needs specific maintenance at specific intervals, usually based on the mileage, and we can quickly and easily set you up on maintenance reminders. As you come to have your oil changes and other services done, we’ll remind you of exactly what Acura recommends based on your mileage and other factors. Let’s take a look at the basic Acura recommendations for maintenance.
Replacing Engine Oil
Your 2014 Acura RLX is set to automatically display a “Maintenance Due Now” or “Service Due Now” message that lets you know it’s time for an oil change. However, if this doesn’t come on 12 months after the message has been reset, then it’s time for an oil change. While your oil change schedule is mostly determined by your mileage, it’s also true that if you’re not getting enough miles within a year to hit the oil change mark, then you should have it changed on a yearly basis. Once again, we can automatically remind you if a year has gone by and we haven’t seen you in for an oil change.
What to Expect During an Oil Change
Many car owners have never had their vehicle serviced at a dealership and don’t realize what an oil change at Montgomeryville Acura involves. During each scheduled oil change we will:
- Replace your engine oil
- Replace oil filter
- Inspect the brakes on the back and front
- Check the adjustment of your parking brake
- Inspect the tie rod ends, boots, drain plug, and steering gearbox
- Inspect your suspension components
- Inspect the brake hoses and lines
- Inspect every fluid level and the condition of said fluids
- Inspect your exhaust system
- Check the driveshaft boots
- Inspect the fuel lines and their connections
- Investigate the expiration information for TRK bottle
Additional Maintenance Services on a Less Frequent Basis
The above services are completed each time we change your oil, but there are several other maintenance services that are done on a less regular basis. We will check the idle speed every 160,000 miles, we will replace the brake fluid every 3 years, we will adjust your valves on a rotating basis, or when they’re noisy, we’ll replace the air cleaner element during alternating schedules, we’ll replace both the dust and pollen filters every 15,000 miles, and we’ll inspect your drive belt.
Other services we do on a rotating schedule include replacing your transmission fluid, replacing your spark plugs, replacing your timing belt, inspecting your water pump, inspecting valve clearance, and replace engine coolant. The best option is to sign up for a maintenance program with Montgomeryville Acura and let us take care of everything for you. We’ll contact you when it’s time to come in and you’ll simply bring your Acura RLX in to be serviced as the manufacturer recommends.
