Your Guide to 2005 Acura TL Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura TL and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your TL. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your TL, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2005 Acura TL!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your TL's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2005 Acura TL problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Acura TL Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2005 Acura TL and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your TL's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2005 Acura TL be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your TL may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura TL battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty TL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura TL could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2005 Acura TL's engine run smoother. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2005 TL, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2005 Acura TL? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura TL 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 the appropriate Acura TL steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura TL's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura TL? You know your Acura TL better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Acura TL need 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.
