2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your AMG GT R’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your AMG GT R’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R. 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*. The second service focuses on your AMG GT R'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 AMG GT R. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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.

2020 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mercedes-Benz’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my AMG GT R? 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R 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.
