Acura recommends having your 2018 Acura TLX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your TLX in the above table.

2018 Acura TLX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura TLX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura TLX engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Acura TLX oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
