2017 Mazda CX-9 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mazda CX-9 Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2017 Mazda CX-9 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your CX-9’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Mazda's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your CX-9’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Mazda CX-9

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mazda CX-9 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*. The second service focuses on your CX-9's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 CX-9'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 CX-9's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2017 Mazda CX-9s

  • What happens if my Mazda CX-9 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mazda CX-9? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mazda CX-9. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Mazda CX-9 engine than others? 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.
