Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2018 Subaru Forester

Tune-Ups to Help Your Subaru Forester Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2018 Subaru Forester. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Forester’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Subaru, you invest in your Forester's long-term health and engine performance.

Subaru Forester Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Subaru Forester engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Forester. 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 Forester's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Forester: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Subaru Forester

Schedule your next 2018 Forester engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Subaru, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Questions About 2018 Subaru Forester Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Subaru Forester spark plugs fail? 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 Subaru’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Subaru Forester? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Subaru Forester. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Subaru Forester engine? 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.
