Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1983 Porsche 911. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 911. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Porsche for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 911’s engine running smoother, longer.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Porsche 911 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your 911's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 911. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 911's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.
Schedule your next 1983 911 engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Porsche, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
