Enhance Mazda RX-8 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2008 Mazda RX-8 in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your RX-8. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mazda, you invest in your RX-8's long-term health and engine performance.

Mazda RX-8 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2008 Mazda RX-8. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your RX-8. 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 RX-8's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2008 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. 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 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 some driving habits better for my Mazda RX-8 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.
