1987 Chevrolet Cavalier Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet Cavalier Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Cavalier’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Chevrolet's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Cavalier’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Chevrolet Cavalier

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Chevrolet Cavalier engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 Cavalier. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Cavalier's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Cavalier: 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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Schedule your next 1987 Cavalier engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Chevrolet, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 Chevrolet Cavaliers

  • What happens if my Chevrolet Cavalier spark plugs fail? 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 Cavalier mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet Cavalier. 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 Cavalier 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.
