2018 Kia Rio Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Kia Rio

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 drive a 2018 Kia Rio. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Rio’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Kia's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Rio’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Kia Rio

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2018 Kia Rio. 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 Rio. 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 Rio’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Rio: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2018 Kia Rio Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Kia Rio 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 Rio? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Kia Rio engine than others? 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.
