1985 Subaru GL-10 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Subaru GL-10 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? 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 want your 1985 Subaru GL-10’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your GL-10. 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 get routine engine tune-ups based on Subaru's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your GL-10’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Subaru GL-10

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 Subaru GL-10. 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your GL-10. 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 GL-10's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your GL-10 can determine what kind of service it 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.

1985 Subaru GL-10 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Subaru GL-10 to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Subaru GL-10 mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Subaru GL-10. 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 GL-10 engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
