Service Spotlight: Automotive Tune Up

car repairKeeping your vehicle on a regular maintenance schedule will help you keep your car on the road and reduce the chances of ending up stranded on the side of the road calling for a tow truck. These are a few things we check during an inspection to make sure your car is running properly:

  • Ignition Check
  • Engine Fault Codes Check
  • Battery Voltage Check

We will typically change pieces including the spark plugs, rotor and distributor caps, and O2 sensors if they appear to be worn out. The air filter, fuel filter, and the filter for the PCV valve will all be replaced to improve your car’s performance. Older vehicles are more likely to need the O2 sensors replaced as well as belts and hoses. Adjustments may be necessary for the idle speed and ignition timing.

There is a myth that new vehicles do not require a tune up for their first 100,000 miles and this is simply not true. It is especially important to make sure the filters and oil are changed around every 3,000 miles or 5,000 miles. Regular maintenance keeps your vehicle running smooth for longer. Less maintenance means more wear and tear.
