Tune Into Your Mazda RX-8

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 2005 Mazda RX-8’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your RX-8’s power on the road. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mazda, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your RX-8’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mazda RX-8

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2005 Mazda RX-8. 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 RX-8's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 RX-8. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your RX-8: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2005 Mazda RX-8s

  • Will it hurt my Mazda RX-8 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Mazda RX-8 mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mazda RX-8. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Mazda RX-8 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.
