Tune-ups can vary a bit depending on the type, mileage, and age of your vehicle, but there are some basic services you can expect:
The owner’s manual of your vehicle will include a recommended vehicle maintenance schedule that will inform your tune-up needs. However, a local auto technician can also make recommendations.
The most important benefit of tune-ups is that they help you avoid costly auto repairs. During a tune-up, small issues can be repaired before they become larger problems. For example, if your spark plugs need to be replaced, you may not notice any changes in your car’s performance. Over time, however, significant engine problems can occur that are much more expensive than a simple spark plug replacement.
Tune-ups also ensure your car is running in peak condition, so that you’re getting the best possible mileage and lowest possible emissions. This service takes the guesswork out of figuring out if your vehicle is safe and reliable, giving you more confidence behind the wheel.
