Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2009 Acura MDX

Tune Into Your Acura MDX

Is it time for an engine tune-up?

Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your MDX’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. 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.

Acura MDX Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura MDX engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus 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. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your MDX's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system 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! 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 2009 Acura MDXs

  • 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. 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 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Acura MDX 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.
