2018 Chevrolet Colorado Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Chevrolet Colorado Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Colorado’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. 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. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Colorado. 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 Colorado. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Chevrolet Colorados

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet Colorado to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Colorado? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 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.
