Tune-Ups to Help Your Buick Century 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 want your 1998 Buick Century’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Century’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Buick, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Century’s long-term engine performance.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 Buick Century. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Century. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter.

This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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.

1998 Buick Century Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Buick Century spark plugs fail? 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 Buick’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Buick Century mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Buick Century. 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 some driving habits better for my Buick Century engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
