1988 Chevrolet Blazer Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Chevrolet Blazer

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1988 Chevrolet Blazer in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Blazer. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Chevrolet's recommendations, you invest in your Blazer's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Chevrolet Blazer

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Chevrolet Blazer engine tune-up services. The first 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Blazer. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Blazer’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Blazer can determine what kind of service it needs. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1988 Chevrolet Blazers

  • When should Chevrolet Blazer 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 Blazer mean? 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 some driving habits better for my Chevrolet Blazer engine than others? 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.
