Tune-Ups to Help Your Dodge Intrepid Run Better

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 1997 Dodge Intrepid in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Intrepid’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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 Intrepid’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Dodge Intrepid

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1997 Dodge Intrepid. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Intrepid. 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 Intrepid'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 Intrepid'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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Where Should I Go for My Dodge Intrepid Tune-Up?

Schedule your next 1997 Intrepid engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Dodge, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

Questions About 1997 Dodge Intrepid Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Dodge Intrepid spark plugs fail? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Intrepid? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Dodge Intrepid. 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Dodge Intrepid engine than others? 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.
