2016 Jeep Cherokee Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Jeep Cherokee

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2016 Jeep Cherokee in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Cherokee’s power on the road. 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 Jeep's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Cherokee’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Jeep Cherokee

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2016 Jeep Cherokee. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Cherokee. 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 Cherokee's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Cherokee's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

2016 Jeep Cherokee Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Jeep Cherokee spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Cherokee? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Cherokee 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.
