Tune Into Your Mercury Mountaineer

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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, particularly if you want to keep your 1999 Mercury Mountaineer in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Mountaineer’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 Mercury, you invest in your Mountaineer's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercury Mountaineer

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mercury Mountaineer 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Mountaineer. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Mountaineer's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Mountaineer 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1999 Mercury Mountaineers

  • Will it hurt my Mercury Mountaineer to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Mercury Mountaineer? 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 Mercury Mountaineer 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.
