1997 Subaru Legacy Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Subaru Legacy

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1997 Subaru Legacy in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Legacy’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Subaru's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Legacy’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Subaru Legacy

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Subaru Legacy 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*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Legacy. 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 Legacy. 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 Legacy can determine what kind of service it needs. 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 1997 Subaru Legacy Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Subaru Legacy to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Subaru Legacy mean? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Subaru Legacy engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
