Enhance Pontiac Grand Prix Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up?

Questions About 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Pontiac Grand Prix spark plugs fail? 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.
