Tune-Ups to Help Your Oldsmobile Silhouette Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up?

Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Silhouette. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Oldsmobile's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Silhouette’s long-term engine performance.

Oldsmobile Silhouette Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Silhouette. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Silhouette: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouettes

  • What happens if my Oldsmobile Silhouette spark plugs fail? 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 Silhouette mean? 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 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.
