1989 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Chevrolet Corvette 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 want your 1989 Chevrolet Corvette’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Corvette’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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Chevrolet, 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 nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Chevrolet Corvette 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Corvette. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Corvette. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Corvette's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1989 Chevrolet Corvettes

  • When should Chevrolet Corvette spark plugs be replaced? 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 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? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
