1987 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Chevrolet Astro Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1987 Chevrolet Astro. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Astro. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Chevrolet, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Astro’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Astro

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1987 Chevrolet Astro. The first 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Astro. 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 Astro. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Astro: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1987 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Chevrolet Astro 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 Chevrolet Astro? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet Astro. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Chevrolet Astro 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.
