Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Colorado

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Chevrolet Colorado 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 Colorado's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter.

The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Colorado: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best.

Questions About 2011 Chevrolet Colorado Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet Colorado 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 Colorado? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Chevrolet Colorado engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
