2006 Honda Accord Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda Accord Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2006 Honda Accord’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Accord. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 Honda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Accord’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Honda Accord

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Honda Accord engine tune-up services. 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 Accord. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Accord’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Accord's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2006 Honda Accord Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Honda Accord to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Honda’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Accord? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Honda Accord 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.
