Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1996 Acura NSX in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your NSX. 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 NSX’s engine running smoother, longer.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura NSX 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*. The second service focuses on your NSX's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 NSX's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your NSX can determine what kind of service it needs. 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.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1996 NSX engine tune-up. Follow Acura's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
