2014 Acura TSX Oil Change Service

When to Change 2014 Acura TSX Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Acura TSX’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 having your 2014 Acura TSX’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your TSX in the above table. Outside of Acura-recommended oil change intervals, your TSX may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

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 2014 Acura TSX motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Acura has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2014 TSX. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your TSX's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important 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 odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Acura TSX

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Acura TSX? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Acura TSX engine failure. 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? 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 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
