Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2016 Honda Pilot

Tune Into Your Honda Pilot

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2016 Honda Pilot. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Pilot. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Pilot’s engine running smoother, longer.

Honda Pilot Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Pilot. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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.

Questions About 2016 Honda Pilot Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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. 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 Pilot? 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 Pilot 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.
