What a Tune-up Involves
There’s more to a tune-up than the switch of a button. A properly tuned engine provides power to the wheels, good fuel economy, and the lowest level of emissions.
The main tune-up components are:
- Air Filter
- PCV Valve
- Spark Plugs
- Fuel Filter
- Oxygen Sensor
- Distributor Cap
- Ignition Rotor
- Ignition coil
- Plug wires
What are symptoms that you may need a tune-up?
- Decreased fuel economy
- Loss of power
- Engine stalls
- Hard or no-start conditions
- Foul exhaust odor
- Rough engine performance
- Check Engine light illuminated
What does A Tune-Up Do for Your Car?
Proper maintenance goes beyond just regular oil changes but includes maintaining all fluids, replacing worn-out parts, and basic engine maintenance. A tune-up will restore power and return your vehicle to its original operating state. Regular tune-ups involve a thorough inspection of your engine. The inspection will provide an idea of needed repairs/recommendations.
When Should I Service my Car for a Tune-up?
A proper tune-up can prolong the life of your engine, improve performance and gas mileage. We recommend a vehicle tune-up every 30,000 or as required by the manufacturer, when you notice poor gas mileage, difficult starting conditions or a rough running engine.
