Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Honda Civic

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda Civic Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2012 Honda Civic. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Civic’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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.

Honda Civic Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Honda Civic engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Civic. 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 Civic'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 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.

Questions About 2012 Honda Civic Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Honda Civic to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Civic mean? 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.
  • 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.
