2017 Kia Sorento Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Kia Sorento

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2017 Kia Sorento in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Sorento’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 Sorento’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Kia Sorento

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2017 Kia Sorento. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Sorento. 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 Sorento. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Sorento's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help!

2017 Kia Sorento Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Kia Sorento spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Kia’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Sorento? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Kia Sorento. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Sorento engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
