1986 Chevrolet Camaro Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Chevrolet Camaro Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Camaro’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 Camaro's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Chevrolet Camaro

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1986 Chevrolet Camaro. 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*. The second service focuses on your Camaro'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 Camaro. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Camaro: 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1986 Chevrolet Camaros

  • When should Chevrolet Camaro 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 Camaro? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet Camaro. 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 Camaro engine than others? 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.
