1988 Chevrolet Astro Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Chevrolet Astro Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1988 Chevrolet Astro’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Astro’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 Chevrolet's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Astro’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Astro

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Chevrolet Astro engine tune-up services. 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 Astro'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 Astro's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Astro'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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1988 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • 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 does a puddle underneath my Chevrolet Astro mean? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Astro engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
