1988 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 might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1988 Pontiac Bonneville. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Bonneville. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you invest in your Bonneville's long-term health and 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. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Bonneville. 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 Bonneville. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Bonneville's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Pontiac Bonneville Tune-Up

Follow Pontiac's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.

Questions About 1988 Pontiac Bonneville Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Pontiac Bonneville 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Bonneville? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Bonneville. 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 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.
