2017 Kia Sportage Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Kia Sportage Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2017 Kia Sportage’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sportage’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). 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.

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. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. 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. 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.

Questions About 2017 Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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? 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? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
