Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC Canyon Run Better

Is it time for an engine 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 drive a 2012 GMC Canyon. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Canyon’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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 invest in your Canyon's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC Canyon

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 GMC Canyon. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Canyon. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 Canyon'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 Canyon can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your GMC Canyon

If you’re looking for 2012 Canyon engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from GMC, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

*Ask a Firestone Complete Auto Care teammate about full terms and conditions for warranties.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2012 GMC Canyons

  • Will it hurt my GMC Canyon 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 does a puddle underneath my GMC Canyon mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your GMC Canyon. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my GMC Canyon 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.
