Is it time for an engine 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 2005 Pontiac GTO. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your GTO’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 invest in your GTO's long-term health and engine performance.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2005 Pontiac GTO. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your GTO's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your GTO'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 GTO'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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.
Schedule your next 2005 GTO engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Follow Pontiac's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
