2016 Subaru WRX STI Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Subaru WRX STI Run Better

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, especially if you drive a 2016 Subaru WRX STI. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your WRX STI. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Subaru for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your WRX STI’s engine running smoother, longer.

Subaru WRX STI Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2016 Subaru WRX STI. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 WRX STI'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 WRX STI'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 WRX STI: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2016 Subaru WRX STIs

  • When should Subaru WRX STI 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Subaru WRX STI? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my WRX STI engine? 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.
