What’s the difference between maintenance and an engine tune up? If you look through your car’s owner’s manual, you’ll see several service intervals. Simple service involves oil and oil filter changes and tire rotations. After those, the service intervals become more extensive. A car tune up is considered a major service and there are several things we’ll check and replace during one. These include:
- Replacing spark plugs and wires as needed
- Making any needed corrections on the engine timing
- Scanning the onboard diagnostic (OBD) system
- Replace the fuel filter, PVC valve, and engine air filter as needed
Importance Of A Tune-Up
A car tune up allows us to restore performance that may have been lost due to wear, corrosion, or loss of adjustment. Beyond that, it also gives us a chance to catch small issues before they can become more expensive repairs. 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. Some other indicators include frequent stalling, knocking sounds, a rough idle, or increased difficulty getting your car to start.
Even if your car shows no sign of any issues, it may still be time for a tune up. Older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions should get an engine tune up every 10,000 – 20,000 miles, while newer vehicles are typically due between 30,000 – 100,000 miles. You can refer to your owner’s manual to find the recommendations for your vehicle or give our friendly service advisors a call. They’d be happy to let you know the recommendations for your make and model. Our ASE-certified technicians can perform factory maintenance on all vehicles while keeping your manufacturer’s warranty valid.
