Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1996 Chevrolet Astro

Tune Into Your Chevrolet Astro

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1996 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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Chevrolet Astro. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 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. The result? Restored fuel system 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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where Should I Go for My Chevrolet Astro Tune-Up?

Schedule your next 1996 Astro engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Chevrolet, 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.

1996 Chevrolet Astro Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Chevrolet Astro spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Chevrolet 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Chevrolet 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.
