Enhance Honda Civic Performance with a Tune-Up

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 1996 Honda Civic. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Civic. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Honda, you invest in your Civic's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Honda Civic

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Honda Civic engine tune-up services. The first 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*. The second service focuses on your Civic's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 Civic's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Civic 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.

1996 Honda Civic Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Honda Civic 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 does a puddle underneath my Honda Civic mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Honda Civic. 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 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.
