2013 Kia Optima Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Kia Optima

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 drive a 2013 Kia Optima. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Optima’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 follow the guidelines specified by Kia for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Optima’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Kia Optima

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Kia Optima engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Optima's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 Optima’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Optima can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where Should I Go for My Kia Optima Tune-Up?

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2013 Optima engine tune-up. 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.

Questions About 2013 Kia Optima Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Kia Optima spark plugs be replaced? 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 Optima 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Optima engine? 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.
