2005 Acura MDX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Acura MDX

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, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2005 Acura MDX. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your MDX. 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your MDX’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Acura MDX

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2005 Acura MDX. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your MDX. 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 can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your MDX: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Questions About 2005 Acura MDX Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Acura MDX to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Acura’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Acura MDX mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my MDX engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
