They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Suzuki Grand Vitara

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitara. 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*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Grand Vitara. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Grand Vitara’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your Grand Vitara's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. 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 2005 Suzuki Grand Vitaras

  • What happens if my Suzuki Grand Vitara 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 Suzuki’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Suzuki Grand Vitara? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Suzuki Grand Vitara. 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 Grand Vitara engine? 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.
