2018 Acura TLX Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Acura TLX

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2018 Acura TLX’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your TLX’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Acura, you invest in your TLX's long-term health and engine performance.

Acura TLX Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Acura TLX engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your TLX. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your TLX’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your TLX: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where to Get a Acura TLX Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2018 TLX engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Acura, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Acura TLXs

  • When should Acura TLX spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Acura TLX mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Acura TLX engine than others? 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.
