Acura recommends having your 2009 Acura TL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your TL may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 long distances at low speeds. 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.

2009 Acura TL Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Acura TL engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your TL’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 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 TL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
