1988 Pontiac Firebird Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Pontiac Firebird

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? 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 drive a 1988 Pontiac Firebird. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Firebird. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. 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.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1988 Pontiac Firebird. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Firebird. 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 Firebird's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Firebird's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1988 Pontiac Firebirds

  • When should Pontiac Firebird spark plugs be replaced? 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 some driving habits better for my Pontiac Firebird engine than others? 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.
