2001 Acura TL Transmission Service & Repairs

What Does Your Acura TL Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Acura TL transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Acura TL transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your TL at all.

Questions About 2001 Acura TL’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your TL’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my TL transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Acura TL’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Acura, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
