2002 Pontiac Grand Am Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Pontiac Grand Am

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Grand Am’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). 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

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Pontiac Grand Am engine tune-up services. One option 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. 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 can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Grand Am: 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.

2002 Pontiac Grand Am Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Pontiac Grand Am to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Pontiac Grand Am mean? 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.
  • 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.
