Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Honda Pilot

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda Pilot Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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 2012 Honda Pilot. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Pilot’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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Honda, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Pilot’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda Pilot

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Honda Pilot engine tune-up services. One option 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*. The second service focuses on your Pilot's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Pilot. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Pilot's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

2012 Honda Pilot Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Honda Pilot to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Honda Pilot mean? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Pilot 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.
