2016 Mazda 3 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mazda 3 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2016 Mazda 3’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 3. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Mazda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 3’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mazda 3

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mazda 3 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 3. 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 3’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 3 can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

2016 Mazda 3 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Mazda 3 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 Mazda’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 3? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 3 engine? 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.
