Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC G2500 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1984 GMC G2500 in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your G2500. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 G2500's long-term health and engine performance.

GMC G2500 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC G2500 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your G2500's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 G2500. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your G2500 can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1984 GMC G2500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my GMC G2500 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my GMC G2500 mean? 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 G2500 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.
