Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1996 Kia Sephia. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sephia’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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Kia, you invest in your Sephia's long-term health and engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Kia Sephia engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Sephia. 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 Sephia. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Sephia: 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1996 Sephia 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.
