Enhance Ford Contour Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2000 Ford Contour in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Contour’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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 Contour’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Ford Contour

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Ford Contour engine tune-up services. 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Contour. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Contour’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Contour: 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! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2000 Ford Contour Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Ford Contour 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 Ford’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Contour? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Ford Contour engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
