2010 Acura TL Oil Change

How Often to Get 2010 Acura TL Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Acura TL’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2010 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Acura TL. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your TL by taking into account your driving preferences, climate,

2010 Acura TL Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Acura TL motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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.
  • Can I change my Acura TL oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Acura TL spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
