1987 Honda Accord Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Honda Accord

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1987 Honda Accord. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Accord. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Honda's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Accord’s long-term engine performance.

Honda Accord Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1987 Honda Accord. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Accord'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 Accord. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Accord: 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.

Questions About 1987 Honda Accord Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Honda Accord spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Honda Accord mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Honda Accord. 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 some driving habits better for my Honda Accord engine than others? 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.
