What’s the Importance of Your 2020 TLX’s Transmission?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Acura TLX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

2020 Acura TLX Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 small. 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.
  • When should I have my TLX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2020 TLX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Acura, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Acura TLX leak transmission fluid? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Acura TLX, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
