Is your engine overdue for a tune-up?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1986 Saab 9000. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 9000. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 9000'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 9000 can determine what kind of service it needs.

1986 Saab 9000 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Saab 9000 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Saab 9000? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Saab 9000. 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 some driving habits better for my Saab 9000 engine than others? 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.
