When it comes to vehicle performance, one of the best things you can do for your Acura is use the proper fluids, and replace them at regular intervals. Why is this so important? Over time, fluids lose essential protective properties, and waiting too long between changes can lead to mechanical damage and costly repairs.

Acura genuine motor oil, antifreeze/coolant, brake fluid, automatic transmission fluid and power steering fluid are specially formulated to protect your Acura's mechanical components from harmful deposits, rust, corrosion and oxidation.

So how do you know when it's time to change the fluids? A good rule of thumb is to change the oil every 3,000 miles or so; more often if you do a lot of driving on dirt roads and construction zones. Your vehicle's antifreeze/coolant, brake fluid, automatic transmission fluid and power steering fluid can go a lot longer than that. Check the maintenance schedules in your owner's manual for recommended fluid change intervals, or bring your vehicle into White Bear Acura. The professionals in the service department have checklists they follow to make sure the vehicles they work on perform at their best.
