What to Know About 2001 Acura TL Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura TL and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your TL. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get TL maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2001 Acura TL!

Acura knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your TL's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2001 Acura TL problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura TL

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2001 Acura TL for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your TL's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2001 Acura TL? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura TL battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty TL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura TL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2001 Acura TL's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2001 TL. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2001 Acura TL.

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Acura TL steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Acura TL's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Acura TL maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Acura TL? You know your Acura TL better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I switch my Acura TL to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura TL? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Acura TL in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
