Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1987 Saab 900 in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 900’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Saab's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 900’s long-term engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Saab 900 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 900. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 900’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 900: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1987 900 engine tune-up. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Saab, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
