1985 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Grand Prix Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a 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 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Grand Prix’s engine. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Grand Prix’s engine running smoother, longer.

Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Pontiac Grand Prix engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Grand Prix. 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 Prix’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 Grand Prix's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1985 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Pontiac Grand Prix 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Grand Prix? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Pontiac Grand Prix 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.
