2013 Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Kia Sportage Performance with a Tune-Up

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 2013 Kia Sportage in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sportage’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Kia for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Sportage’s long-term engine performance.

Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several 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. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Sportage can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2013 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. 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 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Sportage 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.
