1987 Subaru GL-10 Tune-Up & Engine Service

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

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1987 Subaru GL-10 in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your GL-10’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run 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 invest in your GL-10's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Subaru GL-10

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Subaru GL-10 engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your GL-10: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 Subaru GL-10s

  • What happens if my Subaru GL-10 spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Subaru’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Subaru GL-10? 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Subaru 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.
