2003 Acura RSX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Acura RSX

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 drive a 2003 Acura RSX. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your RSX. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Acura, you can rest assured you’re investing in your RSX’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Acura RSX

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2003 Acura RSX. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your RSX. 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 RSX’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your RSX'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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2003 Acura RSXs

  • When should Acura RSX spark plugs be replaced? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Acura RSX? 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 RSX 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.
