Porsche 911 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1996 Porsche 911. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

Questions About 1996 Porsche 911 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Porsche 911 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 Porsche’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Porsche 911? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 911 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.
