Tune-Ups to Help Your Ford Expedition Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1997 Ford Expedition. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Expedition’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 follow the guidelines specified by Ford for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Expedition's long-term health and engine performance.

Ford Expedition Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1997 Ford Expedition. 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*. The second service focuses on your Expedition's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Expedition. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Expedition's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.

Where Should I Go for My Ford Expedition Tune-Up?

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1997 Expedition 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, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1997 Ford Expeditions

  • Will it hurt my Ford Expedition to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Ford Expedition mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Expedition 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.
