1999 GMC Safari Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your GMC Safari Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1999 GMC Safari’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Safari’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by GMC for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Safari’s engine running smoother, longer.

GMC Safari Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC Safari engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Safari's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 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! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1999 GMC Safari Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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 does a puddle underneath my GMC Safari mean? 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? 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.
