Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2017 Acura TLX

Enhance Acura TLX Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2017 Acura TLX in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your TLX’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Acura for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your TLX’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Acura TLX

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Acura TLX engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your TLX. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your TLX. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your TLX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Acura TLX Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2017 TLX engine tune-up. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Acura’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

2017 Acura TLX Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Acura TLX spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Acura’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Acura TLX mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my TLX engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
