Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2016 GMC Acadia

Tune Into Your GMC Acadia

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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 want your 2016 GMC Acadia’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Acadia’s engine. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Acadia’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for GMC Acadia

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC Acadia engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Acadia. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Acadia. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Acadia's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2016 GMC Acadias

  • Will it hurt my GMC Acadia to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on GMC’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Acadia? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Acadia 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.
