2002 Acura TL Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Acura TL Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2002 Acura TL in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your TL’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Acura for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your TL's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Acura TL

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura TL engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your TL's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your TL. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your TL's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2002 Acura TLs

  • Will it hurt my Acura TL to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Acura’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my TL? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my TL engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
