2015 Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Kia Sportage

Is it tune-up time? 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 2015 Kia Sportage in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Sportage’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Kia's recommendations, you invest in your Sportage's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Kia Sportage

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Kia Sportage engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Sportage. 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 Sportage’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 Sportage: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

2015 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Sportage? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • 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.
