Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet C3500 Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up?

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your C3500. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Chevrolet's recommendations, you invest in your C3500's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Chevrolet C3500

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Chevrolet C3500 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your C3500. 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 C3500. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your C3500 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.

Questions About 1989 Chevrolet C3500 Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Chevrolet C3500 spark plugs be replaced? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Chevrolet C3500? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet C3500. 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Chevrolet C3500 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.
