1985 Chevrolet C20 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet C20 Run Better

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, especially if you want your 1985 Chevrolet C20’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your C20’s power on the road. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Chevrolet for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your C20's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Chevrolet C20

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Chevrolet C20 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your C20'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 C20. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your C20 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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Chevrolet C20

If you’re looking for 1985 C20 engine tune-up services, head to 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: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1985 Chevrolet C20s

  • When should Chevrolet C20 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Chevrolet C20? 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 C20 engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
