1987 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Pontiac Grand Prix Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1987 Pontiac Grand Prix. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Grand Prix. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Grand Prix’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Pontiac Grand Prix

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Pontiac Grand Prix engine tune-up services. One option 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Grand Prix. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Prix. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Grand Prix'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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 Pontiac Grand Prixs

  • What happens if my Pontiac Grand Prix spark plugs fail? 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 Prix mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Grand Prix. 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 Prix engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
