Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1996 Kia Sportage

Enhance Kia Sportage Performance with a Tune-Up

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, especially if you drive a 1996 Kia Sportage. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sportage’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Kia's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Sportage’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Kia Sportage

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Kia Sportage engine tune-up services. 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 Sportage. 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 Sportage. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Sportage: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where to Get a Kia Sportage Tune-Up

If you’re looking for 1996 Sportage 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.

1996 Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Kia Sportage 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 does a puddle underneath my Kia Sportage mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Kia Sportage. 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 Sportage 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.
