2009 Mazda RX-8 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mazda RX-8 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2009 Mazda RX-8 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your RX-8’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 RX-8’s long-term engine performance.

Mazda RX-8 Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mazda RX-8 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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. 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your RX-8's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up 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.

Questions About 2009 Mazda RX-8 Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Mazda RX-8 spark plugs be replaced? 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 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.
