Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2016 Ford Escape

Tune Into Your Ford Escape

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2016 Ford Escape’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Escape’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Ford for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Escape's long-term health and engine performance.

Ford Escape Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2016 Ford Escape. The first 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Escape. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Escape's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Escape 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.

2016 Ford Escape Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Ford Escape spark plugs fail? 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 Ford Escape? 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 Escape engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
