How Often to Change 2008 Acura TSX Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura TSX’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Acura recommends changing your 2008 TSX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your TSX may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Acura recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2008 Acura TSX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura TSX motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your TSX’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Acura TSX oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Acura TSX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
