Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Hyundai Sonata

Enhance Hyundai Sonata Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2012 Hyundai Sonata in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Sonata. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Hyundai's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Sonata’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Hyundai Sonata

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Hyundai Sonata 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 Sonata. 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 Sonata’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Sonata: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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 Tune-Up for Your Hyundai Sonata

Schedule your next 2012 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: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

2012 Hyundai Sonata Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Hyundai Sonata to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Sonata? 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 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.
