2018 Jeep Cherokee Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Jeep Cherokee Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2018 Jeep Cherokee. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Cherokee’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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Jeep, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Cherokee’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Jeep Cherokee

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Jeep Cherokee 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 Cherokee. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Cherokee’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Cherokee's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up 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 Jeep Cherokee Tune-Up

Use Jeep’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Jeep Cherokees

  • What happens if my Jeep Cherokee spark plugs fail? 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 Jeep’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Jeep Cherokee? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Jeep Cherokee. 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 Jeep Cherokee 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.
