Enhance GMC K2500 Performance with a Tune-Up

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, especially if you drive a 1998 GMC K2500. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your K2500. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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 invest in your K2500's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC K2500

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC K2500 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your K2500. 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 K2500's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your K2500'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! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1998 GMC K2500s

  • Will it hurt my GMC K2500 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC K2500? 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 K2500 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.
