2011 Kia Soul Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Kia Soul

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2011 Kia Soul in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Soul’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Kia's recommendations, you invest in your Soul's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Kia Soul

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Kia Soul engine tune-up services. The first 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*. The second service focuses on your Soul's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 Soul. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Soul can determine what kind of service it needs. 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.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Kia Soul

If you’re looking for 2011 Soul engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Kia, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2011 Kia Souls

  • What happens if my Kia Soul spark plugs fail? 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 Soul? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Kia Soul. 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 Soul 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.
