1997 Ford Aerostar Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Ford Aerostar

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1997 Ford Aerostar. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Aerostar’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Ford's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Aerostar’s engine running smoother, longer.

Ford Aerostar Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Ford Aerostar engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Aerostar. 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 Aerostar. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Aerostar: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! 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 1997 Ford Aerostars

  • When should Ford Aerostar 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 Ford’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Aerostar? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Ford Aerostar. 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 Aerostar 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.
