1996 GMC Jimmy Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC Jimmy Run Better

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 1996 GMC Jimmy in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Jimmy. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on GMC's recommendations, you invest in your Jimmy's long-term health and engine performance.

GMC Jimmy Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 GMC Jimmy. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Jimmy. 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. 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.

1996 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 does a puddle underneath my GMC Jimmy mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your GMC Jimmy. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • 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.
