Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC R2500 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1989 GMC R2500 in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your R2500’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on GMC's recommendations, you invest in your R2500's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your GMC R2500

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1989 GMC R2500. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your R2500. 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 R2500's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your R2500 can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1989 GMC R2500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should GMC R2500 spark plugs be replaced? 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 R2500? 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 R2500 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.
