1996 Oldsmobile Silhouette Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Oldsmobile Silhouette Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1996 Oldsmobile Silhouette. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Silhouette’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Oldsmobile, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Silhouette’s engine running smoother, longer.

Oldsmobile Silhouette Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Oldsmobile Silhouette engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. 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 Silhouette's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Silhouette. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Silhouette'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.

Questions About 1996 Oldsmobile Silhouette Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Oldsmobile Silhouette spark plugs be replaced? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Silhouette? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Oldsmobile Silhouette. 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 Silhouette 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.
