2012 Acura TSX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Acura TSX Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2012 Acura TSX in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your TSX’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Acura's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your TSX’s engine running smoother, longer.

Acura TSX Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura TSX engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your TSX. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 TSX’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your TSX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 2012 Acura TSX Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Acura TSX 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 should I do if I see leaks under my TSX? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Acura TSX engine? 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.
