Tune-Ups to Help Your Buick Riviera Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1996 Buick Riviera’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Riviera’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Buick, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Riviera’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Buick Riviera

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Buick Riviera. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Riviera. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Riviera. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Riviera's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.

Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Buick, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Questions About 1996 Buick Riviera Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Buick Riviera to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Buick Riviera mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Buick Riviera. 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 Riviera engine than others? 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.
