Enhance Dodge D250 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1983 Dodge D250 in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your D250. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 Dodge, you invest in your D250's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Dodge D250

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Dodge D250 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your D250. 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 D250’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your D250's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.

1983 Dodge D250 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Dodge D250 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 Dodge’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Dodge D250 mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Dodge D250. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my D250 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.
