Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1996 Subaru SVX

Tune Into Your Subaru SVX

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1996 Subaru SVX in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your SVX’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Subaru's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your SVX’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Subaru SVX

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Subaru SVX engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your SVX'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 SVX's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your SVX'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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1996 Subaru SVXs

  • When should Subaru SVX 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 Subaru’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my SVX? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Subaru SVX 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.
