Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2012 Chevrolet Colorado

Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet Colorado Run Better

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, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2012 Chevrolet Colorado in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Colorado. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Chevrolet's recommendations, you invest in your Colorado's long-term health and engine performance.

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. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Colorado. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Colorado’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Colorado 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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 2012 Chevrolet Colorado Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Chevrolet Colorado 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 Colorado mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Chevrolet Colorado. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Chevrolet Colorado engine? 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.
