2013 Acura TSX Problems

Engine Leaking Oil

The 2004-2014 Acura TSX engine oil pressure sensor is known to leak from normal operation.

More information about the oil pressure sensor here.

To correct the leak, the sensor must be inspected, properly sealed and installed, or replaced with new.

ABS Light on With Brake Vibration and Grinds

The 2004-2014 Acura TSX has brake caliper issues, which are known for causing vibration and grinding noises at all times.

The brake rotor is a disk that sits between two brake pads. The brake pads are squeezed against the disk by what is called a brake caliper. When that caliper gets stuck, the brake pads are permanently pressed against the rotor causing:

  • Vibration in brake pedal
  • Vibration on steering wheel
  • Illumination of the ABS or brake warning light
  • Grinding noise from one corner of the vehicle
  • Vehicle pulls to one side of the road
  • Braking requires more pressure on the brake pedal
  • The repair for a seized brake caliper, the brake pads, brake rotor, and brake caliper must be replaced or vibration will remain after the new caliper is installed. Changing the brake fluid and flushing the brake system according to manufacturer specified intervals can help improve longevity of the brake caliper.

    The Fuel Door May Not Open Correctly at Times

    The fuel door may not open correctly at times. This may be caused by a lack of clearance between the fuel door and the release latch. The common repair is to slightly trim the top of the fuel door lock tap.
