2003 Acura RL Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Acura RL Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2003 Acura RL in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your RL’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, 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 invest in your RL's long-term health and engine performance.

Acura RL Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2003 Acura RL. The first 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your RL. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your RL’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your RL's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2003 Acura RL Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Acura RL spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Acura RL mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my RL 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.
