1988 Honda CRX Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda CRX 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 might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1988 Honda CRX. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your CRX. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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 invest in your CRX's long-term health and engine performance.

Honda CRX Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1988 Honda CRX. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option.

The second service focuses on your CRX'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 CRX's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your CRX's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

1988 Honda CRX Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Honda CRX spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Honda CRX? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Honda CRX 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.
