Why Are Car Tune Ups Important?
A car tune up typically involves an inspection of your vehicle and proactive replacement of wear and tear parts. This includes 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 lost from wear, corrosion, or loss of adjustment. We can inspect your car for any potential issues and address them before they turn into an expensive repair. If you’ve noticed performance issues or poor gas mileage, it may be time to schedule an engine tune up.
Here are some signs it’s time for a tune up:
- 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. Typically, it will be 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 also perform factory maintenance on all vehicles! We know it can be inconvenient to be without your car, which is why we offer alternative transportation. 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. Contact us today to schedule your appointment or request an appointment online.
