2003 Acura TL Drivetrain Repair

All About 2003 Acura TL Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your TL's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your TL and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2003 Acura TL, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Acura's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Acura TL Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2003 Acura TL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your TL might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Acura TL.

How much does it cost to fix your 2003 Acura TL drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
