Enhance Toyota Camry Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? 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 1997 Toyota Camry in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Camry’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Toyota for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Camry’s long-term engine performance.

Toyota Camry Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Toyota Camry engine tune-up services. 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*. The second service focuses on your Camry'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 Camry'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 Camry: 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! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1997 Toyota Camrys

  • Will it hurt my Toyota Camry 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 should I do if I see leaks under my Camry? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Camry engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
