Enhance GMC Safari Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a 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 1998 GMC Safari. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Safari’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 Safari’s long-term engine performance.

GMC Safari Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 GMC Safari. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Safari. 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 Safari. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Safari: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Where Should I Go for My GMC Safari Tune-Up?

Use GMC’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1998 GMC Safaris

  • Will it hurt my GMC Safari to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my GMC Safari? 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 Safari 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.
