2013 Acura TL Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2013 Acura TL Oil Changes

Need more info about 2013 Acura TL oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Acura recommends having your 2013 Acura TL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your TL may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Acura TL?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2013 Acura TL motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2013 TL. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your TL’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your TL by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2013 Acura TL Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura TL? Engine oil lubricates 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 should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura TL oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura TL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
