Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2006 Saturn Ion in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Ion. 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 follow the guidelines specified by Saturn for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Ion’s long-term engine performance.
Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Saturn Ion engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Ion. 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 Ion’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Ion's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. 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.
Schedule your next 2006 Ion engine tune-up service at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Follow Saturn's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.
