2018 Honda Fit Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda Fit Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2018 Honda Fit in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Fit’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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’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 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Fit. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Fit’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 Fit: 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.

Questions About 2018 Honda Fit Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Honda Fit 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 does a puddle underneath my Honda Fit mean? 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Honda Fit engine? 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.
