1984 Ford Escort Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Ford Escort Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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, especially if you drive a 1984 Ford Escort. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Escort’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Ford, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Escort’s long-term engine performance.

Ford Escort Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Ford Escort engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Escort. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Escort's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Escort: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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 to Get a Tune-Up for Your Ford Escort

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1984 Escort engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Ford, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: 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.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

1984 Ford Escort Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Ford Escort to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Ford Escort mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Ford Escort. 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 Escort engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
