Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1993 GMC Jimmy

Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC Jimmy Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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 want your 1993 GMC Jimmy’s engine to last for a long time. 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 follow the guidelines specified by GMC for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Jimmy’s engine running smoother, longer.

GMC Jimmy Engine Tune-Up Services

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. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Jimmy. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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). Keep in mind that your Jimmy's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up 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.

1993 GMC Jimmy Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my GMC Jimmy spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC Jimmy? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Jimmy engine? 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.
