Questions About 2002 Acura TL’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your TL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my TL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Acura TL transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
