2009 Acura TSX Oil Change

When to Change 2009 Acura TSX Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura TSX’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Acura recommends changing your 2009 TSX’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your TSX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Acura if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Acura TSX Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2009 Acura TSX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2009 Acura TSX vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your TSX’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and mileage.

2009 Acura TSX Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Acura TSX motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Acura TSX 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 TSX oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
