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.
