2019 Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Kia Sportage

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2019 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Kia's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Sportage’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Kia Sportage

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. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Sportage's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

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

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2019 Sportage engine tune-up. Follow Kia's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

2019 Kia Sportage Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Kia Sportage spark plugs fail? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Sportage? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Kia 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.
