The best way to extend the lifespan of your Acura TLX is by keeping up with all the routine maintenance it will need. This includes having fluids changed, worn parts replaced, and systems inspected.

While we can take care of all of this for our drivers in Jenkintown, Abington, and Lower Southampton Township here at Acura of Abington, it will be important for you to know exactly when to schedule each service. Below, we outline what services your Acura TLX will regularly need and when to have them done.

Acura TLX Maintenance Schedule Jenkintown PA Keeping You Aware

Thanks to Maintenance Minder™, you won’t have to do the math of miles driven since your last oil change. This system is able to monitor various systems and components of your TLX and let you know when certain maintenance services need to be done.

When it does detect it is time for a certain service, a message will appear on the multi-information display. At all times, you can also view the condition of the engine’s oil life. When you see that it gets to 15 percent or below, you will want to schedule an oil change soon. At the minimum, an oil change should be performed at least once a year.

Acura TLX Maintenance Schedule Jenkintown PA What do the Maintenance Minder™ Codes Mean?

When your TLX detects that a maintenance service is needed, it will display a series of letters and numbers when it alerts you through Maintenance Minder™.

First, you will see either the letter “A” or “B”. “A” means you will need to have the oil changed. “B” means you will need to inspect a series of systems and parts along with getting an oil change. This includes having the following inspected:

  • Front and rear brakes
  • Tire rod ends, steering gearbox, and boots
  • Suspension components
  • Exhaust system

In addition to that, you will also want to check the condition and levels of all fluids when the letter “B” is represented on the Maintenance Minder™ message.

Beyond that, you may also see a sequence of numbers following either of those letters. Here are the services that correspond with each particular number.

  • 1: Rotate Tires
  • 2: Replace air cleaner element, dust and pollen filter, and drive belt
  • 3: Replace transmission fluid and transfer fluid
  • 4: Replace sparks plugs
  • 5: Replace engine coolant

If you end up seeing the number “6” too, it will be time to replace the rear differential fluid. Also, the number “7” means you will need to replace the brake fluid.
