How Often to Change 2013 Acura TSX Oil

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. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Your 2013 TSX’s oil should be changed according to Acura’s recommended oil change 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, smell oil inside the car, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Acura TSX. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2013 Acura TSX Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura TSX? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Acura TSX spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
