Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 2012 Ram 1500 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 1500’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Ram, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 1500’s long-term engine performance.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Ram 1500. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 1500. 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 1500. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 1500: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
