2013 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Chevrolet Corvette

Is it tune-up time? 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, especially if you want your 2013 Chevrolet Corvette’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Corvette. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Chevrolet, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Corvette’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Chevrolet Corvette

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Chevrolet Corvette engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Corvette's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Corvette: 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.

Where Should I Go for My Chevrolet Corvette Tune-Up?

Schedule your next 2013 Corvette engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Follow Chevrolet's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

2013 Chevrolet Corvette Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Chevrolet Corvette to drive with old spark plugs? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Chevrolet Corvette? 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 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.
