Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban. 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your C2500 Suburban. 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 C2500 Suburban’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your C2500 Suburban's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1996 Chevrolet C2500 Suburban Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Chevrolet’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Chevrolet C2500 Suburban mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet C2500 Suburban. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my C2500 Suburban 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.
