1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Oldsmobile Cutlass

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Cutlass’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, 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’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Oldsmobile Cutlass

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass. One option 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Cutlass. 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 Cutlass. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Cutlass's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Oldsmobile Cutlass spark plugs fail? 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 Cutlass? 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 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.
