Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC Acadia Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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 2018 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, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by GMC, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Acadia’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC Acadia

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC Acadia engine tune-up services. 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Acadia. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Acadia’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 2018 GMC Acadia Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my GMC Acadia 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my GMC Acadia 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.
