1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Custom Cruiser’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Oldsmobile for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Custom Cruiser’s engine running smoother, longer.

Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 Custom Cruiser. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Custom Cruiser’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Custom Cruiser: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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 1983 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser spark plugs be replaced? 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 Custom Cruiser? 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 some driving habits better for my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine than others? 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.
