2005 Acura TL Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Acura TL Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2005 Acura TL’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your TL’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Acura for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your TL’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Acura TL

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2005 Acura TL. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your TL's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your TL's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your TL's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

2005 Acura TL Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Acura TL to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Acura’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Acura TL mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Acura TL. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my TL engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
