Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Porsche 944

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Porsche 944 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 944. 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. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 944 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.

Questions About 1990 Porsche 944 Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Porsche 944 spark plugs fail? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my 944? 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 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.
