Your Guide to 2004 Acura TL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura TL to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your TL. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine TL maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2004 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your TL running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2004 Acura TL problems later.

Overview of Essential Acura TL Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2004 Acura TL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your TL’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2004 Acura TL be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your TL stranded. Your Acura TL won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2004 Acura TL running newer, longer. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2004 TL, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2004 Acura TL.

Routine upkeep for your Acura TL suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Acura TL steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Acura TL's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Acura TL maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Acura TL’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Acura TL? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2004 Acura TL maintenance.

  • When should I have Acura TL alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2004 TL is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Acura TL to high mileage oil? If your Acura TL has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Acura dashboard lights on? 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.
