Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1997 Honda CR-V

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda CR-V Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1997 Honda CR-V’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your CR-V’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, 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 invest in your CR-V's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda CR-V

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Honda CR-V engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your CR-V'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 CR-V's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your CR-V: 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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Honda CR-V Tune-Up

Schedule your next 1997 CR-V engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Honda, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Questions About 1997 Honda CR-V Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Honda CR-V 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 should I do if I see leaks under my CR-V? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Honda CR-V 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.
