1990 GMC S15 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance GMC S15 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1990 GMC S15. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your S15’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 S15's long-term health and engine performance.

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC S15 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your S15. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your S15. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your S15 can determine what kind of service it needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1990 GMC S15s

  • What happens if my GMC S15 spark plugs fail? 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 does a puddle underneath my GMC S15 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my GMC S15 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.
