1988 Pontiac Grand Prix Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Grand Prix Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1988 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 follow the guidelines specified by Pontiac for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Grand Prix’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Pontiac Grand Prix

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Pontiac Grand Prix engine tune-up services. The first 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*. 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. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Grand Prix: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! 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 1988 Pontiac Grand Prixs

  • 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 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? 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.
