1987 Hyundai Excel Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Hyundai Excel Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1987 Hyundai Excel. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Excel. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). 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.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Hyundai Excel

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Hyundai Excel engine tune-up services. One option 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 Excel. 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 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! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where Should I Go for My Hyundai Excel Tune-Up?

1987 Hyundai Excel Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Hyundai 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? 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.
