2012 Porsche 911 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Porsche 911 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2012 Porsche 911’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 911. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. 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.

Porsche 911 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Porsche 911 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 911. 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 911. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 911's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 2012 Porsche 911 Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Porsche 911 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 Porsche’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 911? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Porsche 911 engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
