1983 Pontiac Firebird Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Firebird Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1983 Pontiac Firebird in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Firebird. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Pontiac, you invest in your Firebird's long-term health and engine performance.

Pontiac Firebird Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1983 Pontiac Firebird. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Firebird. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Firebird’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Firebird can determine what kind of service it 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 1983 Pontiac Firebird Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Pontiac Firebird spark plugs fail? 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 Firebird? 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Pontiac Firebird 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.
