Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1989 Jeep Cherokee

Tune Into Your Jeep Cherokee

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 drive a 1989 Jeep Cherokee. 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 take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Jeep, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Cherokee’s long-term engine performance.

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. One option 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*. The second service focuses on your Cherokee's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1989 Jeep Cherokees

  • What happens if my Jeep Cherokee spark plugs fail? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Cherokee? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Cherokee 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.
