Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1985 Subaru DL

Tune Into Your Subaru DL

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, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 1985 Subaru DL’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your DL’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, 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 Subaru for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your DL’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Subaru DL

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 Subaru DL. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your DL's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel 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 DL. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your DL: 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. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Questions About 1985 Subaru DL Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Subaru DL spark plugs be replaced? 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 Subaru DL? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Subaru DL. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my DL 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.
