Tune Into Your GMC R2500

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1987 GMC R2500. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your R2500’s power on the road. 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 can rest assured you’re investing in your R2500’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for GMC R2500

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC R2500 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your R2500's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your R2500’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your R2500's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

1987 GMC R2500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my GMC R2500 spark plugs fail? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC R2500? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your GMC R2500. 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 R2500 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
