Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1996 Chevrolet C3500

Tune Into Your Chevrolet C3500

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 1996 Chevrolet C3500. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your C3500’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Chevrolet for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your C3500's long-term health and engine performance.

Chevrolet C3500 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Chevrolet C3500 engine tune-up services. One option 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 C3500'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 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1996 Chevrolet C3500 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet C3500 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my 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 some driving habits better for my Chevrolet C3500 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.
