1998 Ford Expedition Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Ford Expedition Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1998 Ford Expedition’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Expedition. 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 Expedition’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Ford Expedition

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Ford Expedition engine tune-up services. One option 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. 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 Expedition’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1998 Ford Expedition Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Ford Expedition? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Ford Expedition. 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 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.
