Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your RLX. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy.

Engine Tune-Up for Acura RLX

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2018 Acura RLX. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your RLX. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 RLX’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your RLX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

Questions About 2018 Acura RLX Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Acura RLX to drive with old spark plugs? 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 RLX 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Acura RLX 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.
