1986 Hyundai Excel Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Hyundai Excel Performance with a Tune-Up

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, especially if you want your 1986 Hyundai Excel’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Excel. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Hyundai's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Excel’s long-term engine performance.

Hyundai Excel Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Hyundai Excel 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*. The second service focuses on your Excel'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 Excel's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Excel's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1986 Hyundai Excels

  • What happens if my Hyundai Excel spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Hyundai’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Excel? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Excel engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
