Tune-Ups to Help Your Dodge B1500 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, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1996 Dodge B1500. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your B1500’s engine. 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 Dodge, you invest in your B1500's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Dodge B1500

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Dodge B1500. 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 B1500. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your B1500's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your B1500: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1996 Dodge B1500s

  • What happens if my Dodge B1500 spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Dodge B1500? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my B1500 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.
