Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1997 Acura TL. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your TL’s power on the road. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your TL’s engine running smoother, longer.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1997 Acura TL. One option 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*. The second service focuses on your TL'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 TL's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your TL's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
If you’re looking for 1997 TL engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Acura’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
