2006 Pontiac GTO Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac GTO Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2006 Pontiac GTO. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your GTO’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your GTO’s long-term engine performance.

Pontiac GTO Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2006 Pontiac GTO. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your GTO. 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 GTO. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your GTO: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2006 Pontiac GTO Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Pontiac GTO spark plugs be replaced? 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 GTO mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac GTO. 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Pontiac GTO engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
