1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Chevrolet C20 Suburban

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, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your C20 Suburban’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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Chevrolet, you can rest assured you’re investing in your C20 Suburban’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet C20 Suburban

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Chevrolet C20 Suburban engine tune-up services. One option 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your C20 Suburban. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 C20 Suburban. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your C20 Suburban: 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.

1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Chevrolet C20 Suburban 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 does a puddle underneath my Chevrolet C20 Suburban 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 C20 Suburban engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
