1996 GMC Safari Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your GMC Safari

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 1996 GMC Safari. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Safari. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by GMC for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Safari's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for GMC Safari

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC Safari engine tune-up services. 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*. The second service focuses on your Safari'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 Safari’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Safari 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! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1996 GMC Safari Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my GMC Safari 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC Safari? 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 Safari 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.
