Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix in tip-top shape. 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 invest in your Grand Prix's long-term health and engine performance.
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. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Grand Prix. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 Prix’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Grand Prix can determine what kind of service it 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.
