Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Subaru Tribeca

Tune Into Your Subaru Tribeca

Is it time for an engine 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 2012 Subaru Tribeca in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Tribeca’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Tribeca’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Subaru Tribeca

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Subaru Tribeca engine tune-up services. One option 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 Tribeca. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Tribeca’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Tribeca'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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Use Subaru’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

2012 Subaru Tribeca Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Subaru Tribeca spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Subaru Tribeca mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Subaru Tribeca. 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 Tribeca engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
