Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1986 GMC G3500 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your G3500’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by GMC, you can rest assured you’re investing in your G3500’s long-term engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC G3500 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your G3500. 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 G3500. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your G3500: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1986 G3500 engine tune-up. Follow GMC's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.
