1990 Jeep Wrangler Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Jeep Wrangler Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1990 Jeep Wrangler in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Wrangler. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Jeep's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Wrangler’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Jeep Wrangler

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1990 Jeep Wrangler. 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 Wrangler. 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 Wrangler. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Wrangler's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1990 Jeep Wrangler Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Jeep Wrangler 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 Wrangler? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Jeep Wrangler. 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 Wrangler 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.
