Tune Into Your GMC Savana 1500

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1998 GMC Savana 1500. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Savana 1500. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on GMC's recommendations, you invest in your Savana 1500's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for GMC Savana 1500

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to GMC Savana 1500 engine tune-up services. The first 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 Savana 1500. 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 Savana 1500. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Savana 1500 can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1998 GMC Savana 1500 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my GMC Savana 1500 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Savana 1500? 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 Savana 1500 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.
