Give your engine the tune-up it needs from our expert technicians.

COMMITTED TO KEEPING YOUR CAR RUNNING NEWER, LONGER

When you bring your vehicle into Firestone Complete Auto Care for a tune-up, our skilled technicians will inspect your engine, analyze vehicle performance, and make adjustments as needed. The engine tune-up checklist will include both preventative and restorative engine assessment and final maintenance recommendations that will vary from vehicle to vehicle based on age, mileage and unique manufacturer recommendations.

An engine tune-up will help ensure your engine and your vehicle are running like they should. Your vehicle's engine is a complex and finely-engineered machine. If one or more essential components are operating poorly, damaged, faulty, or worn out, you can put unnecessary strain on your engine's ignition system, leading to further damage to other parts of your vehicle.

If you think there's a problem with your engine or it's been a while since your last tune-up, stop by a Firestone Complete Auto Care near you to let our expert technicians take a look under the hood. We'll follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommended tune-up schedule, so you'll know what to expect and how to help keep their car running newer, longer.

What is Included In a Tune-Up?

Firestone Complete Auto Care uses the checklists provided by the original equipment manufacturer as part of their manufacturer scheduled maintenance services. These checklists can include things like:

  1. Replace spark plugs and wires/coil boots
  2. Set ignition timing -if applicable
  3. Replace engine air filter
  4. Replace fuel filter - if applicable
  5. Clean the throttle body - if applicable
  6. Perform a fuel system cleaning

Get the Tune-Up Services Your Vehicle Needs

Since vehicle age, mileage and maintenance history all uniquely affect a vehicle's service needs, it's important to remember that there is not a one-size-fits all engine tune-up procedure, and that some vehicles will require analysis of more engine components than those listed above.

Our expert technicians know how often to change spark plugs, how to tell if a spark plug is bad, when to change a fuel filter, and how often you should tune-up your car based on manufacturer recommendations.

No matter if your engine needs a tune-up or your car needs a full vehicle inspection, drop into one of our 1,700+ Firestone Complete Auto Care stores for the services you need. Call your local store or go online to schedule your appointment to keep your vehicle running newer, longer.
