Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2021 Kia Sportage

Tune-Ups to Help Your Kia Sportage Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2021 Kia Sportage. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sportage’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Kia, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Sportage’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Kia Sportage

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2021 Kia Sportage. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. 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. 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. 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.

2021 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Kia 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.
