1988 Ford Country Squire Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Ford Country Squire

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1988 Ford Country Squire. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Country Squire’s power on the road. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Ford, you invest in your Country Squire's long-term health and engine performance.

Ford Country Squire Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Ford Country Squire 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Country Squire. 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 Country Squire’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Country Squire: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1988 Ford Country Squire Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Ford Country Squire spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Country Squire? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Ford Country Squire. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Ford Country Squire 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.
