Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Work Truck Working As Hard As You Do
Learn how our expert technicians take care of your engine.
Engine health is essential to good vehicle performance and lifespan. And one of the best ways to help maintain your engine is by an engine tune-up service from the expert technicians at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care. We'll help keep the essential components in your engine clean and running like they should.
An engine tune-up is the process of inspecting and replacing components of the engine that are essential to ignition and engine operation. A comprehensive tune up can include:
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
At Firestone Complete Auto Care, transparency is a top priority. Our technicians will always inform you of any components that need to be replaced during your engine tune-up appointment, and we'll only replace necessary parts, so you're not paying for repairs you don't need.
In terms of how often an engine tune-up is needed, service requirements vary from vehicle to vehicle and can also vary based on vehicle mileage and age. You can find your manufacturer scheduled maintenance services for tune-ups and other maintenance in your vehicle owner’s manual, or a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate can supply you with a printout upon request.
While the mileage and time intervals between tune-ups can vary, you may notice a few symptoms telling you it's time to schedule a diagnostics check to determine if a tune-up is necessary.
Have you noticed any of these symptoms lately? Bring your vehicle into your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for the engine tune-up service your vehicle needs.
If you're unsure whether it's time for a tune-up, our expert technicians can help. Schedule a routine maintenance service, such as an oil change, and you'll receive our free Courtesy Check. Or, add a Complete Vehicle Inspection to your next service appointment for a more detailed look at your entire vehicle. We'll ensure everything is running as it should. If not, we'll fix it right, at the right price, right on time. That's the Firestone Triple Promise.
