2016 Kia Sportage Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Kia Sportage

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.

Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Up Services

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.

Where Should I Go for My Kia Sportage Tune-Up?

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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2016 Kia Sportages

  • Will it hurt my Kia Sportage to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Sportage? 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Kia Sportage engine? 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.
