Tune-Ups to Help Your Mazda 626 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1996 Mazda 626. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 626’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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 Mazda's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 626’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Mazda 626

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mazda 626 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 626. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 626's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 626's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1996 Mazda 626 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Mazda 626 spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 626? 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 some driving habits better for my Mazda 626 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.
