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, especially if you drive a 1998 Saturn SL. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your SL’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Saturn for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your SL's long-term health and engine performance.
Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Saturn SL engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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 SL. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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 SL. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your SL'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. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1998 SL engine tune-up. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Saturn’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: stalling or shaky idling when you’re stopped, diminished fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
