2008 Audi R8 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Audi R8 Run Better

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, especially if you want your 2008 Audi R8’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your R8’s engine. 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 Audi for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your R8’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Audi R8

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2008 Audi R8. 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 R8'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 R8's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your R8: 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.

Where to Get a Audi R8 Tune-Up

If you’re looking for 2008 R8 engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Audi, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

2008 Audi R8 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Audi R8 spark plugs be replaced? 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 Audi’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my R8? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Audi R8. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Audi R8 engine? 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.
