1989 Oldsmobile 98 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Oldsmobile 98 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1989 Oldsmobile 98 in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 98’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 Oldsmobile, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 98’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Oldsmobile 98

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Oldsmobile 98 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 98. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 98. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your 98'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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1989 Oldsmobile 98 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Oldsmobile 98 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Oldsmobile 98? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 98 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.
