Tune-Ups to Help Your Jeep Cherokee Run Better

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Cherokee. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Jeep, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Cherokee’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Jeep Cherokee

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Jeep Cherokee engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Cherokee. 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 Cherokee. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Cherokee 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1985 Jeep Cherokees

  • What happens if my Jeep Cherokee spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Jeep Cherokee? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Jeep Cherokee. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Jeep Cherokee engine than others? 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.
