2018 Kia Niro Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Kia Niro

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2018 Kia Niro’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Niro’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Kia, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Niro’s long-term engine performance.

Kia Niro Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Kia Niro 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 Niro. 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 Niro’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Niro can determine what kind of service it 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.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Kia Niro

Schedule your next 2018 Niro engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Follow Kia's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

2018 Kia Niro Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Kia Niro spark plugs fail? 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 does a puddle underneath my Kia Niro mean? 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 Niro engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
