2003 Pontiac Montana Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Montana Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 2003 Pontiac Montana. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Montana. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Pontiac for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Montana’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Pontiac Montana

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Pontiac Montana 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Montana. 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 Montana's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Montana: 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.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2003 Pontiac Montanas

  • Will it hurt my Pontiac Montana to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Pontiac’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Pontiac Montana? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Montana. 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 some driving habits better for my Pontiac Montana engine than others? 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.
