2020 Honda Pilot Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Honda Pilot Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a 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 2020 Honda Pilot. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Pilot. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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 invest in your Pilot's long-term health and engine performance.

Honda Pilot Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Honda Pilot 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 Pilot. 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 Pilot’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. 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! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2020 Honda Pilots

  • What happens if my Honda Pilot spark plugs fail? 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 does a puddle underneath my Honda Pilot mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 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.
