Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2021 Honda Pilot

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda Pilot Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2021 Honda Pilot in tip-top shape. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Honda's recommendations, you invest in your Pilot's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda Pilot

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2021 Honda Pilot. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Pilot's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 Pilot's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Pilot: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2021 Honda Pilot Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Honda Pilot to drive with old spark plugs? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Honda 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.
