Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1987 Jeep Cherokee

Tune-Ups to Help Your Jeep Cherokee Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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 want your 1987 Jeep Cherokee’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Cherokee’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Jeep's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Cherokee’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Jeep Cherokee

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Jeep Cherokee 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Cherokee. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1987 Jeep Cherokee Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Jeep Cherokee spark plugs be replaced? 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 does a puddle underneath my Jeep Cherokee 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 Jeep Cherokee 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.
