Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1987 Pontiac Safari

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Safari Run Better

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 1987 Pontiac Safari in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Safari’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Safari’s long-term engine performance.

Pontiac Safari Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Pontiac Safari engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Safari. 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 Safari. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Safari: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 Pontiac Safaris

  • Will it hurt my Pontiac Safari to drive with old spark plugs? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Safari? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Safari. 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 Safari engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
