2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Chevrolet Captiva Sport

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Captiva Sport’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 Chevrolet for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Captiva Sport’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Captiva Sport

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 Captiva Sport. 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 Captiva Sport's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Captiva Sport can determine what kind of service it 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.

2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet Captiva Sport to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Chevrolet Captiva Sport 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Captiva Sport 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.
