Tune Into Your Buick Skylark

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1996 Buick Skylark’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Skylark’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Buick's recommendations, you invest in your Skylark's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Buick Skylark

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Buick Skylark. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Skylark's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Skylark’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Skylark's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1996 Buick Skylark Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Buick Skylark to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Skylark? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Buick Skylark engine? 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.
