1985 Chevrolet Corvette Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Chevrolet Corvette

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 1985 Chevrolet Corvette’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Corvette’s power on the road. 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your Corvette’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Corvette

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 Chevrolet Corvette. One option 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 Corvette. 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 Corvette’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 Corvette can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1985 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Chevrolet Corvette spark plugs be replaced? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Corvette? 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 Corvette 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.
