2008 GMC Acadia Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance GMC Acadia Performance with a Tune-Up

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, particularly if you want to keep your 2008 GMC Acadia in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Acadia’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on GMC's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Acadia’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC Acadia

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2008 GMC Acadia. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Acadia. 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 Acadia's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Acadia can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

2008 GMC Acadia Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my GMC Acadia 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC Acadia? 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 Acadia 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.
