1987 Chevrolet Caprice Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Chevrolet Caprice Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Caprice. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Chevrolet, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Caprice’s engine running smoother, longer.

Chevrolet Caprice Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1987 Chevrolet Caprice. The first 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Caprice. 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 Caprice. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Caprice's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Chevrolet Caprice spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Chevrolet Caprice? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet Caprice. 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 Caprice engine? 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.
