2014 Acura RDX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Acura RDX Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a 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 2014 Acura RDX’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your RDX’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Acura's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your RDX’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Acura RDX

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura RDX 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*. The second service focuses on your RDX's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 RDX. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your RDX: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where to Get a Acura RDX Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2014 RDX engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Acura, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2014 Acura RDXs

  • Will it hurt my Acura RDX 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 RDX? 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Acura RDX engine than others? 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.
