1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Custom Cruiser. 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 invest in your Custom Cruiser's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Custom Cruiser. 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. Keep in mind that your Custom Cruiser'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.

1986 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser spark plugs be replaced? 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 Oldsmobile’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Custom Cruiser? 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.
