Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2008 Honda Ridgeline

Tune Into Your Honda Ridgeline

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2008 Honda Ridgeline. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Ridgeline’s power on the road. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Honda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Ridgeline's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Honda Ridgeline

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Honda Ridgeline engine tune-up services. The first 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Ridgeline. 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 Ridgeline. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Ridgeline can determine what kind of service it needs. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2008 Honda Ridgelines

  • Will it hurt my Honda Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline 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.
