Tune Into Your Pontiac Grand Am

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1988 Pontiac Grand Am. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Grand Am. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, 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 Grand Am’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Pontiac Grand Am

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Pontiac Grand Am engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Grand Am's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Grand Am’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Grand Am's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1988 Pontiac Grand Ams

  • 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Grand Am? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Grand Am. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Grand Am 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.
