2017 Audi R8 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Audi R8 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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 want your 2017 Audi R8’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your R8’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Audi for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your R8's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Audi R8

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Audi R8 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 R8's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your R8. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your R8 can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2017 Audi R8 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Audi R8 spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Audi R8? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my R8 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.
