2021 Kia Sorento Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Kia Sorento Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2021 Kia Sorento in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Sorento’s power on the road. 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 invest in your Sorento's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Kia Sorento

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2021 Kia Sorento. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Sorento. 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 Sorento’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Sorento: 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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2021 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Kia 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Kia Sorento 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.
