Enhance Dodge Charger Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1984 Dodge Charger. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Charger. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Dodge for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Charger’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Dodge Charger

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1984 Dodge Charger. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 Charger'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 Charger. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Charger can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1984 Dodge Chargers

  • Will it hurt my Dodge Charger 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 Dodge’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Dodge Charger mean? 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Dodge Charger engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
