Each of these parts must be in good condition and operate properly to assure your car is safe and performs at its best. Car tune-up service is important because it provides your mechanic with an opportunity to inspect and, if necessary, replace components that are no longer functioning properly.
Car tune-up service is important part of its preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance protects your car and extends it life. Many of the components in your car require periodic replacement. During tune-up service, your mechanic will visual inspect components and follow your car manufacturer’s recommend maintenance schedule.
Car tune-up service includes:
- Full visual inspection of engine components
- Installation of new spark plugs and wires
- Installation of a new distributor cap, if necessary
- Replacement of air filter
- Replacement of gas filters
- Inspection of the blades and installation of a new rotor, if necessary
- Inspection of the valve-cover gasket and valve adjustments
- Inspecting and replenishing all fluids as needed
- Replacement of Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve, if necessary
Car tune-up service can prevent or reduce a variety of problems including poor gas mileage, slow acceleration, and engine knock. Tune-up service can also catch and address issues that would otherwise worsen over time, leaving you with expensive repairs or worse.
The recommended tune-up service schedule can vary from car to car, but it is typically every 30,000 miles. It is a good idea to check your owner’s manual for your car’s specific recommendation.
