Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2009 Honda Ridgeline

Tune-Ups to Help Your Honda Ridgeline Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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, particularly if you want to keep your 2009 Honda Ridgeline in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Ridgeline. 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 Ridgeline’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Honda Ridgeline

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Honda Ridgeline 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*. The second service focuses on your Ridgeline'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 Ridgeline's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 2009 Honda Ridgeline Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Honda Ridgeline spark plugs fail? 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 Ridgeline? 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Honda Ridgeline engine than others? 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.
