2009 Honda Fit Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Honda Fit

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2009 Honda Fit’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Fit. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Honda, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Fit’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda Fit

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Honda Fit engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 Fit. 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 Fit'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 Fit 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! 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 Fit Tune-Up

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2009 Fit engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Honda, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2009 Honda Fits

  • What happens if my Honda Fit spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Fit? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Honda Fit. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Fit 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.
