An auto tune up service is a preventative maintenance service that helps to ensure the optimal performance and efficiency of your vehicle. It typically involves a thorough inspection of various vehicle components and systems, as well as adjustments and replacements as needed to keep your vehicle running smoothly.

May Include:

Inspection and testing of the battery, charging system, and fuel system

Testing and potential replacement of the oxygen sensor and spark plugs

Examination of the emissions control system and adjustment of timing and idle speed

Inspection and potential replacement of belts, hoses, and brake components

Assessment of the cooling system, including the radiator and coolant levels

Analysis of the vehicle’s computer system to identify any issues or error codes

How to Know if Your Vehicle Needs a Tune Up:

There are several signs that may indicate the need for an auto tune up service. Here are a few examples:

  • Decreased fuel efficiency: If you’ve noticed a significant drop in fuel efficiency or an increase in gas consumption, it could indicate a problem that requires a tune up.
  • Unusual noises or vibrations: If you hear unusual noises or feel vibrations while driving, it could indicate an issue with the engine or other components that require inspection.
  • Rough idling or stalling: If the engine is idling roughly or stalling frequently, it could indicate a need for adjustments or replacements of various components.
  • Trouble starting the engine: If the engine is slow to start or won’t start at all, it could indicate a problem with the battery, starter, or other components.
  • Decreased power or acceleration: If you’ve noticed a lack of power or difficulty accelerating, it could indicate an issue with the engine or other components.
  • Dashboard warning lights: If any dashboard warning lights are illuminated, such as the check engine light or oil pressure light, it could indicate a problem that requires inspection and diagnosis.

Keep in mind that these are just a few examples, and there may be other symptoms that could indicate the need for an auto tune up service. Additionally, regular tune ups can be a preventative measure to help keep your vehicle running smoothly and prevent issues from developing.
