1985 Pontiac Firebird Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Pontiac Firebird

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1985 Pontiac Firebird’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Firebird’s engine. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Firebird’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Pontiac Firebird

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Pontiac Firebird engine tune-up services. 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. 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 Firebird. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Firebird: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. 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.

1985 Pontiac Firebird Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Pontiac Firebird 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Pontiac Firebird? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Firebird. 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.
  • 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.
