Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1988 Honda Prelude’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Prelude’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Honda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Prelude's long-term health and engine performance.
Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Honda Prelude engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Prelude. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Prelude’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 Prelude's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1988 Prelude engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Honda, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
