1985 Pontiac Grand Am Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Pontiac Grand Am

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, particularly if you want to keep your 1985 Pontiac Grand Am in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Grand Am. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Pontiac for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Grand Am's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Pontiac Grand Am

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 Pontiac Grand Am. 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*. The second service focuses on your Grand Am's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Grand Am. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Grand Am'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.

Questions About 1985 Pontiac Grand Am Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Pontiac Grand Am spark plugs be replaced? 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 Grand Am? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Pontiac Grand Am engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
