Acura recommends having your 2011 Acura TL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your TL in the above table.

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.

2011 Acura TL Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Acura TL engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura TL engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura TL oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
