Enhance Buick Century Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1989 Buick Century in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Century’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Buick for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Century's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Buick Century

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Buick Century 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*. The second service focuses on your Century'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 Century's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Century can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1989 Buick Century Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Buick Century spark plugs be replaced? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Buick Century? 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 Century 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.
