Tune Into Your Mazda RX-8

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 2006 Mazda RX-8. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your RX-8’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Mazda for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your RX-8’s engine running smoother, longer.

Mazda RX-8 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mazda RX-8 engine tune-up services. The first 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. 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 RX-8’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your RX-8 can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2006 Mazda RX-8s

  • When should Mazda RX-8 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mazda RX-8? 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? 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.
