Tune Into Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

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 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Cutlass Ciera’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Oldsmobile for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Cutlass Ciera’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 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 Cutlass Ciera. 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 Cutlass Ciera’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 Cutlass Ciera: 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass Cieras

  • What happens if my Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera spark plugs fail? 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 Cutlass Ciera? 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 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
