Tune-Ups to Help Your Acura MDX Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2003 Acura MDX. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your MDX’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Acura for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your MDX’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Acura MDX

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Acura MDX engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 MDX. 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 MDX. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your MDX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2003 Acura MDX Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Acura MDX spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my MDX? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Acura MDX. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my MDX engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
