Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1987 GMC R3500’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your R3500. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by GMC, you can rest assured you’re investing in your R3500’s long-term engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several GMC R3500 engine tune-up services. One option 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your R3500. 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 R3500’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 R3500 can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1987 R3500 engine tune-up.
