Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1985 GMC Jimmy

Tune Into Your GMC Jimmy

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1985 GMC Jimmy. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Jimmy’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, 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 Jimmy’s long-term engine performance.

GMC Jimmy Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 GMC Jimmy. The first 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*. The second service focuses on your Jimmy'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 Jimmy. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Jimmy 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.

1985 GMC Jimmy Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my GMC Jimmy 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Jimmy? 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 Jimmy 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.
