Tune-Ups to Help Your Mazda 6 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2004 Mazda 6’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 6’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Mazda's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 6’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Mazda 6

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mazda 6 engine tune-up services. The first 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 6. 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 6. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 6 can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 2004 Mazda 6 Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Mazda 6 spark plugs be replaced? 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 6? 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 Mazda 6 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.
