1998 Hyundai Sonata Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Hyundai Sonata 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, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1998 Hyundai Sonata. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Sonata’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Hyundai's recommendations, you invest in your Sonata's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Hyundai Sonata

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 Hyundai Sonata. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Sonata. 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 Sonata. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Sonata can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Hyundai Sonata Tune-Up

Schedule your next 1998 Sonata engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Hyundai, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

1998 Hyundai Sonata Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Hyundai Sonata spark plugs be replaced? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Sonata? 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 Hyundai Sonata engine than others? 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.
