2017 Kia Forte5 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Kia Forte5 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 might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2017 Kia Forte5. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Forte5’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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 Kia, you invest in your Forte5's long-term health and engine performance.

Kia Forte5 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Kia Forte5 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Forte5. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Forte5. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Forte5: 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Schedule your next 2017 Forte5 engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Kia, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

2017 Kia Forte5 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Kia Forte5 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Kia Forte5? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Kia Forte5. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Forte5 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.
