2019 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, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2019 Kia Sorento. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sorento’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your Sorento’s long-term engine performance.

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 2019 Kia Sorento. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Sorento. 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Sorento's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

2019 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. 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 Sorento mean? 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? 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.
