Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2001 GMC Jimmy

Tune Into Your GMC Jimmy

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2001 GMC Jimmy’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Jimmy. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 invest in your Jimmy's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC Jimmy

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2001 GMC Jimmy. The first 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*. 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 goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Jimmy's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2001 GMC Jimmys

  • When should GMC Jimmy spark plugs be replaced? 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 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my GMC 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.
