Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2016 Kia Sportage in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Sportage. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Sportage’s engine running smoother, longer.
Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Kia Sportage engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Sportage. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Sportage's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.
If you’re looking for 2016 Sportage engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Kia’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
