2021 Acura ILX Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Acura ILX

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2021 Acura ILX’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your ILX’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Acura, you can rest assured you’re investing in your ILX’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Acura ILX

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura ILX engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your ILX. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your ILX. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your ILX: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2021 Acura ILXs

  • What happens if my Acura ILX spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Acura ILX? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Acura ILX engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
