1988 Hyundai Excel Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Hyundai Excel

Is it time for an engine 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 1988 Hyundai Excel in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Excel’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Hyundai for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Excel’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Hyundai Excel

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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Excel. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Excel. 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! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1988 Hyundai Excel Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Hyundai Excel 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 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Hyundai 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.
