1987 Pontiac 6000 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Pontiac 6000

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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 1987 Pontiac 6000’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 6000. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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 Pontiac for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 6000's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Pontiac 6000

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Pontiac 6000 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 6000. 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 6000. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 6000'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! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1987 Pontiac 6000 Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Pontiac 6000 spark plugs be replaced? 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 Pontiac’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Pontiac 6000? 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Pontiac 6000 engine than others? 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.
