Tune-Ups to Help Your Porsche 911 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2008 Porsche 911’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 911. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Porsche for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 911's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Porsche 911

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Porsche 911 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

The second service focuses on your 911'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 911'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 911 can determine what kind of service it needs.

2008 Porsche 911 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Porsche 911 spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Porsche 911? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Porsche 911. 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 Porsche 911 engine than others? 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.
