1989 Porsche 944 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Porsche 944 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1989 Porsche 944 in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 944. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Porsche for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 944’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Porsche 944

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Porsche 944 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 944'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 944’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your 944's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1989 Porsche 944 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Porsche 944 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Porsche 944 mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Porsche 944. 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Porsche 944 engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
