Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1996 GMC C1500 Suburbans

  • What happens if my GMC C1500 Suburban spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.

  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my GMC C1500 Suburban 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.
