Is it time for an engine 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 2009 Kia Optima. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Optima’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Kia, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Optima’s long-term engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Kia Optima 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 Optima. 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 Optima. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Optima: 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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.
If you’re looking for 2009 Optima engine tune-up services, head to 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, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
