What’s the Importance of Your 2016 TLX’s Transmission?

Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your TLX’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Acura TLX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Acura TLX transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your TLX’s not even driveable.

2016 Acura TLX Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura TLX? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your TLX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my TLX transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Acura TLX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
