1986 Oldsmobile Firenza Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Oldsmobile Firenza Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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 Firenza’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Firenza’s engine. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Firenza’s engine running smoother, longer.

Oldsmobile Firenza Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Oldsmobile Firenza 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 Firenza. 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 Firenza. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Firenza'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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1986 Oldsmobile Firenza Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Oldsmobile Firenza 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 Firenza mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Firenza 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.
