Tune Into Your Oldsmobile Delta 88

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Delta 88’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Oldsmobile for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Delta 88’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Oldsmobile Delta 88

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Oldsmobile Delta 88 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your Delta 88's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Delta 88's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Delta 88 can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

  • When should Oldsmobile Delta 88 spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.

Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Oldsmobile’s recommendations.

  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Delta 88 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.
