2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your AMG GT R’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mercedes-Benz, you invest in your AMG GT R's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your AMG GT R. 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 AMG GT R. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your AMG GT R's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Rs

  • What happens if my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R? 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 some driving habits better for my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R 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.
