How Often to Get 2005 Acura TSX Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Acura TSX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Acura recommends having your 2005 Acura TSX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your TSX may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Acura TSX. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Acura TSX?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2005 Acura TSX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2005 Acura TSX vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your TSX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your TSX by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2005 Acura TSX Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Acura TSX motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Acura TSX engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Acura TSX oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
