2008 Acura TL Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2008 Acura TL Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Acura TL’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2008 TL’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your TL 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2008 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 specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2008 Acura TL vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your TL’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

2008 Acura TL Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura TL motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura TL engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Acura TL oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
