Enhance GMC Jimmy Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1987 GMC Jimmy. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Jimmy. 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your Jimmy’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC Jimmy

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC Jimmy 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 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Jimmy: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 GMC Jimmys

  • 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? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
