1996 Pontiac Firebird Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Firebird Run Better

Is it time for an engine 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 1996 Pontiac Firebird. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Firebird’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Pontiac for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, 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 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*. The second service focuses on your Firebird's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Firebird: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1996 Pontiac Firebird Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Pontiac Firebird 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 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 stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
