Is it tune-up time?

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Civic del Sol’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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Honda's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Civic del Sol’s engine running smoother, longer.

Honda Civic del Sol Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Honda Civic del Sol 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Civic del Sol. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Civic del Sol’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 Civic del Sol'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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1997 Honda Civic del Sol Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Honda Civic del Sol spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay.

Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Honda Civic del Sol? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Honda Civic del Sol. 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 Civic del Sol engine than others? 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.
