2018 Hyundai Sonata Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Hyundai Sonata

Is your engine overdue for a 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, especially if you drive a 2018 Hyundai Sonata. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sonata’s engine. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Sonata’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Hyundai Sonata

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Hyundai Sonata engine tune-up services. 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. 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 Sonata's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. 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.

2018 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Hyundai Sonata? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Hyundai Sonata. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Hyundai Sonata engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
