1985 Renault R18i Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Renault R18i 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 1985 Renault R18i’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your R18i. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Renault's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your R18i’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Renault R18i

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Renault R18i engine tune-up services. 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*. The second service focuses on your R18i's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 R18i. 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 R18i 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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1985 Renault R18i Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Renault R18i 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 Renault’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Renault R18i mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Renault R18i. 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 Renault R18i 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.
