1990 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet Astro Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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 1990 Chevrolet Astro’s engine to last for a long time. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Chevrolet for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Astro’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Astro

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several 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. 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. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Astro can determine what kind of service it 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.

Where to Get a Chevrolet Astro Tune-Up

Follow Chevrolet's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

1990 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Chevrolet Astro spark plugs be replaced? 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 Astro? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • 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.
