1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Custom Cruiser’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 Oldsmobile, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Custom Cruiser’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

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 standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 Custom Cruiser. 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 Custom Cruiser's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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 1985 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser 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 does a puddle underneath my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
