Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1990 Suzuki Sidekick

Tune-Ups to Help Your Suzuki Sidekick Run Better

Is it time for an engine 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, especially if you drive a 1990 Suzuki Sidekick. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Sidekick. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Suzuki, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Sidekick’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Suzuki Sidekick

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Suzuki Sidekick engine tune-up services. One option 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 Sidekick's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. 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 Sidekick's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your Sidekick: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1990 Suzuki Sidekick Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Suzuki Sidekick spark plugs fail? 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 Suzuki Sidekick 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Sidekick 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.
