Engine Tune-Up for Saab 9000

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Saab 9000 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 9000. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1989 Saab 9000s

  • Will it hurt my Saab 9000 to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Saab 9000 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.
