2012 Honda Ridgeline Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Honda Ridgeline

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2012 Honda Ridgeline’s engine to last for a long time. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2012 Honda Ridgelines

  • What happens if my Honda Ridgeline spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Honda Ridgeline? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Honda Ridgeline. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Honda Ridgeline 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.
