1987 Pontiac T1000 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Pontiac T1000 Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a 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 1987 Pontiac T1000. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your T1000. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Pontiac's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your T1000’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Pontiac T1000

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Pontiac T1000 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 T1000. 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 T1000’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 T1000 can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1987 Pontiac T1000 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Pontiac T1000 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 T1000? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Pontiac T1000. 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 T1000 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.
