Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 2008 Pontiac Solstice

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac Solstice Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 2008 Pontiac Solstice. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Solstice’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Pontiac, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Solstice’s engine running smoother, longer.

Pontiac Solstice Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Pontiac Solstice engine tune-up services. One option 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 Solstice. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Solstice’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Solstice can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where to Get a Pontiac Solstice Tune-Up

Schedule your next 2008 Solstice 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: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.

Questions About 2008 Pontiac Solstice Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Pontiac Solstice spark plugs fail? 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 does a puddle underneath my Pontiac Solstice mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac Solstice. 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 Solstice 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.
