What is Motor Oil?

Motor oil is essential to keeping your Acura running safely and smoothly on the roads in and around San Diego. It lubricates your engine, protects moving parts, and helps to maintain the engine temperature levels. There are three types of oil currently available: conventional (or “regular oil”), synthetic oil, and synthetic blend. Learn more about each type of oil below:

  • Conventional oil is refined from crude oil and provides lubrication to reduce engine wear. It also serves to protect your car’s engine from high temperatures. 
  • Full synthetic oils are also refined from crude oil, but the specialized refinement process eliminates certain chemical compositions found in conventional oils that contribute to oil oxidation and sludge buildup. Acura Ultimate Full Synthetic motor oil is specifically developed for Acura vehicles, and it is designed to enhance engine performance at extreme temperatures or under severe driving conditions. Synthetic oil typically costs more than conventional oil, but some vehicles require it.
  • A synthetic blend is a blend of synthetic and conventional oil. Some Carlsbad drivers opt for a synthetic blend since it can provide many of the benefits of synthetic oil at a more affordable price. 

Keeping up to date with your Acura oil change schedule will ensure that your engine will run at peak performance levels, and it can improve fuel efficiency on your Temecula commute.

Acura Oil Filters in Escondido, CA

When you get an Acura oil change in Escondido at our dealership, we will always replace the oil filter as part of the service. The engine oil filter is a critical component in protecting your engine, and Acura OEM oil filters are engineered to meet the specs of your Acura car or SUV. How does an oil filter work? The oil pump forces the oil through the filter which traps containments as the oil flows into the engine block. Some of the benefits of an Acura OEM oil filter include:

  • Acura oil filters use 60% more paper, based on the surface area more than other competitive filters, which means that they can capture more contaminants to help keep your oil as clean as possible.
  • Our Acura OEM oil filters also superior seal that creates more solid contact between the filter and engine, preventing leaks.
  • The anti-drain back valve prevents old, dirty oil from draining back into the engine when the engine shuts off.
  • Acura oil filters are specifically created for your Acura vehicle, meaning you will get the best performance when you use a genuine Acura oil filter.

If you are changing the oil in your car at home, you can get genuine Acura TLX, Acura RDX, and Acura MDX oil filters in Escondido at our parts department.
