2012 Honda CR-Z Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Honda CR-Z Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2012 Honda CR-Z’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your CR-Z’s engine. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Honda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your CR-Z’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda CR-Z

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Honda CR-Z engine tune-up services. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your CR-Z. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your CR-Z. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your CR-Z's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. 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-Z Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Honda CR-Z 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-Z? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my CR-Z engine? 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.
