2012 Honda CR-V Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Honda CR-V

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2012 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 give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Honda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your CR-V’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda CR-V

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Honda CR-V. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 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. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your CR-V can determine what kind of service it needs. 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.

Questions About 2012 Honda CR-V Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Honda CR-V 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 CR-V? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Honda CR-V. 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 CR-V engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
