Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1992 GMC K1500 Suburbans

  • What happens if my GMC K1500 Suburban spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on GMC’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my GMC K1500 Suburban mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your GMC K1500 Suburban. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my K1500 Suburban 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.
