Enhance GMC C1500 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1998 GMC C1500 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your C1500’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on GMC's recommendations, you invest in your C1500's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC C1500

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC C1500 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 C1500'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 C1500’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your C1500: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

1998 GMC C1500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my GMC C1500 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 does a puddle underneath my GMC C1500 mean? 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my GMC C1500 engine than others? 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.
