2005 Acura TL Oil Change

How Often to Change 2005 Acura TL Oil

Need more info about 2005 Acura TL oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Acura recommends changing your 2005 TL’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your TL may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Acura if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura TL. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Acura TL?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Acura TL. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2005 TL. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your TL’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your TL by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2005 Acura TL Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Acura TL engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your TL’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Acura oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura TL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
