1986 Pontiac Bonneville Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Bonneville 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 Pontiac Bonneville’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Bonneville’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Pontiac for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Bonneville’s long-term engine performance.

Pontiac Bonneville Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Pontiac Bonneville engine tune-up services. The first 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 Bonneville. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Bonneville's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Bonneville'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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1986 Pontiac Bonnevilles

  • When should Pontiac Bonneville 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 Bonneville? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Bonneville engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
