Motor oil is essential when it comes to maintaining the correct level of lubrication between the moving metal parts of the engine in your new Acura RDX, so they function as efficiently as possible. Motor oil also keeps the engine in your vehicle running at the proper temperature while maintaining optimal performance and a smooth ride. As motor oil breaks down over time, it becomes less effective. This is why regular oil changes are necessary. While synthetic oil lasts longer than conventional motor oil, and you can go longer between oil changes, all motor oil breaks down over time. The majority of new Acura models on the roads of Langhorne, Pennsylvania, run on synthetic motor oil.
Your new Acura relies on hydraulic brakes to come to a stop. This means that there is a fluid that is pumped into the brake calipers to squeeze the rotors and slow/stop your car. Your Acura boasts a high-temperature brake fluid that delivers superior stopping power even if the brakes on your vehicle are hot. The specialists in our service department will bleed the brakes on your Acura to remove any air bubbles from the hydraulic system then top off the brake fluid reservoir with DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid depending on your vehicle.
Coolant flows through the radiator and the engine in your new Acura to remove heat from under the hood and maintain an ideal running temperature. As the radiator fluid flows through the engine, it absorbs heat and needs to be cooled. The fluid then flows back into the radiator where it is cooled by the fan and outside air. The radiator fluid or coolant is continually pushed through this circuit via the water pump to maintain a consistent temperature. Many cars come equipped with a mixture of coolant and antifreeze to prevent the liquid from freezing when temperatures drop below freezing. If there isn't the correct mixture of antifreeze in your car's radiator, the engine block can freeze and crack, which would cause the oil to spill out and no longer function.
The transmission in your new Acura RDX also has a fluid that lubricates the moving metal parts and extends the life of your transmission. Changing the fluid in your used Acura sedan as needed will help extend the life of your car's transmission as well as maintain the ideal lubrication characteristics among the gears and facilitate smooth gear changes for a smooth, quiet ride along the streets of Newtown, Pennsylvania. Check your car's owner's manual for the suggested interval for when to change the automatic transmission fluid if your Acura has a non-sealed transmission.
If it's been a while since you've had a brake fluid inspection, transmission fluid service, or radiator coolant flush, stop by our auto repair center in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, for Acura fluid services.
