Superior materials and advanced technology combine to make the ultimate oil filter for your Acura. For example, take apart an Acura oil filter and you'll find 60% more paper, based on surface area, than the leading competitive oil filters. This variable density filter paper is responsible for trapping contaminants and keeping your oil clean. Clean Oil = Happy Engine!
Acura uses an aluminum crush washer. Some oil changers might mistakenly use a plastic one, which is not as effective

Oil bearing the Starburst will provide superior performance in the areas of deposit and sludge protection, wear protection, and oil life), and is also subjected to a series of Acura-specific tests to guarantee optimum performance and compatibility with your Acura vehicle. It has just the right amounts of detergent and lubricants prescribed by our engineers. To learn more, click on the picture above.
1st OIL CHANGE ON MY NEW ACURA Your Acura engine was delivered with an oil that is specially formulated for new engines that have not yet developed their "natural" wear patterns and may contain minute particles from the manufacturing process. Acura strongly recommends this special oil be left in the engine long enough for these wear patterns to develop, usually until the first maintenance interval specified in your Owner's Manual, based on your specific driving conditions.
