Enhance Dodge Lancer Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1987 Dodge Lancer in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Lancer. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Dodge's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Lancer’s long-term engine performance.

Dodge Lancer Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Dodge Lancer engine tune-up services. The first 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 Lancer. 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 Lancer. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Lancer'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.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Dodge Lancer

If you’re looking for 1987 Lancer engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Follow Dodge'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, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

1987 Dodge Lancer Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Dodge Lancer 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Dodge Lancer? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Dodge Lancer. 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 Lancer 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.
