Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1986 Subaru RX in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your RX’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Subaru, you invest in your RX's long-term health and engine performance.
Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Subaru RX engine tune-up services. One option 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 RX. 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 RX'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's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.
Schedule your next 1986 RX engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Subaru’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.
