When to Change 1999 Acura TL Engine Oil

Need more info about 1999 Acura TL oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Acura recommends having your 1999 Acura TL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your TL may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura TL. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1999 Acura TL Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Acura TL engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your TL’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura TL oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
