The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC K1500 Suburban engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your K1500 Suburban. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your K1500 Suburban's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your K1500 Suburban: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1996 GMC K1500 Suburbans

  • When should GMC K1500 Suburban spark plugs be replaced? 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 K1500 Suburban mean? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my K1500 Suburban engine? 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.
