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, particularly if you want to keep your 1985 Porsche 911 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 911’s power on the road. 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 Porsche for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 911’s long-term engine performance.
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. 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 911’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 911 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! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
