Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2002 Acura RL

Tune Into Your Acura RL

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2002 Acura RL in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your RL. 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 RL’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Acura RL

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Acura RL engine tune-up services. The first 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*. The second service focuses on your RL'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 RL's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your RL: 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2002 Acura RLs

  • Will it hurt my Acura RL 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 should I do if I see leaks under my RL? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Acura RL. 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 some driving habits better for my Acura RL engine than others? 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.
