2021 Kia K5 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Kia K5 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? 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 2021 Kia K5’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your K5’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Kia for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your K5's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Kia K5

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Kia K5 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 K5. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 K5's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your K5 can determine what kind of service it needs. 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.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Kia K5

Schedule your next 2021 K5 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: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

2021 Kia K5 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Kia K5 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Kia K5? 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 K5 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.
