A car tune up typically involves an inspection of your vehicle and the proactive replacement of wear and tear parts, such as spark plugs and wires, fuel filters, and engine air filters. It can also involve scanning the onboard diagnostic system or making needed corrections on the engine timing. An engine tune up is important because it allows us to restore performance than may have been lost due to wear, corrosion, or loss of adjustment. Additionally, we can inspect your car for any potential issues and address them before they turn into an expensive repair. If it’s been a while since your last engine tune up and you’ve noticed performance issues or poor gas mileage, it may be time to schedule an appointment.
If it’s been a while since your last tune up, you may notice signs like
- frequent stalling
- knocking sounds coming from the engine
- a rough idle
- increased difficulty getting your car to start
Your owner’s manual will list the recommended service intervals for your car tune up, but it’s typically between 30,000 – 100,000 miles on newer vehicles and 10,000 – 20,000 miles on older cars with non-electronic ignitions. You’re also welcome to give our friendly service advisors a call and they can look up the recommendations for your specific make and model. We can perform factory maintenance on all vehicles as well – and your warranty will remain valid. We know it can be inconvenient to be without your vehicle, which is why we offer alternative transportation, including a free shuttle service and low-cost loaner cars. Or, you’re more than welcome to wait in our comfortable waiting area. We have two convenient locations to serve you in Nashua and Milford.
