Questions About 2005 Acura TL’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your TL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my TL's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Acura TL transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Acura's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
