2018 Kia Cadenza Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Kia Cadenza 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 want your 2018 Kia Cadenza’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Cadenza. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Kia for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Cadenza’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Kia Cadenza

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2018 Kia Cadenza. 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*. The second service focuses on your Cadenza's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Cadenza. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Cadenza'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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2018 Kia Cadenza Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Kia Cadenza spark plugs be replaced? 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 Kia’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Kia Cadenza? 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 Kia Cadenza engine than others? 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.
