Don’t Forget To Tune-up Your Vehicle

If you want your vehicle to last as long as possible while performing efficiently, you should bring it to the nearest auto repair center for regular tune-up services. The certified technicians at our repair shop can perform various preventative maintenance services, including tune-ups on your truck. The majority of vehicles are in need of a tune-up service every 30,000 miles. Our shop offers dependable, affordable and quality tune-ups, as well as various other various repair and maintenance services.

Tune-up Benefits

Tune-ups can be performed in a variety of ways, contingent on the type of vehicle it’s done on. Benefits of tune-ups include:

  • Increased gas mileage
  • Longer vehicle lifespan
  • More engine power

Tune-ups can also help identify serious engine issues by finding and switching out faulty components, such as spark plugs and fuel filters, before it’s too late.


Each component of your vehicle has a certain life expectancy, so it should not come as a surprise when for instance, your transmission or suspension breaks down. The life expectancy of each component is shown in your owner’s manual with specific manufacturer benchmarks, roughly around every 30,000 miles. However, sometimes these components can last much longer that the suggested time frame. Nonetheless, it’s a good idea to have them inspected by a qualified and experience technician at our auto repair shop, on a regular basis. If you want to avoid major problems in the future, you should have a computer diagnostic performed and vehicle components inspected on regular basis.

Symptoms to Look Out For

Issues that signify tune-up services are important to understand. Unusual engine sounds, slow acceleration, air flow & electrical problems, and low gas mileage are all indicators that your vehicle is likely due for a tune-up. Chances are that a mechanic will ask you why you believe that a tune-up is necessary on your vehicle, so being aware of these indicators will help you communicate with the mechanic to explain what you are experiencing.

Professional Tune-ups

The tricky part about tune-ups is that similar symptoms can suggest contrasting issues, and usually there are multiple possibilities for causes and cures. This is why we suggest that it’s a good idea to seek help from a professional technician rather than to try to be one if you have neither the experience nor the right equipment to properly diagnose drivability issues. When speaking to a mechanic, instead asking for a tune-up, let the mechanic know what you’re experiencing and ask him or her to find the cause.
