WHAT OUR TUNE-UP SERVICE IS AND WHY YOU NEED IT
Some things never change. So, if your car’s performance has you wondering if it’s time for a tune-up, you’re in good company. One thing that has changed a lot in recent years? Tune-ups themselves. In newer cars, there’s no longer much to “tune” or adjust.
That doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from a thorough analysis of your vehicle’s performance to ensure it is running its best and small maintenance services or repairs don’t become big ones down the road. That’s why a free 29-point inspection with one of our service technicians is never a bad idea.
ABOUT OUR TUNE-UP SERVICE
What’s included with our tune-up service?
For many years, a vehicle tune-up service involved an engine inspection and, if necessary, a replacement carburetor and sparkplugs. And if your vehicle was made before 2000, a tune-up service remains the same.
However, if your vehicle was made after the year 2000, it’s unlikely to have a carburetor. With carburetors largely a thing of the past, today’s “tune-up” is actually a systems inspection accompanied by new sparkplugs.
So, what makes our inspection different (and better)? For starters, our professional technicians go beyond the typical checkup with a comprehensive 29-point checklist that covers every major system in your vehicle. Next, we’ll inspect your spark plugs to determine whether they need replacement.
After our inspection, we’ll share any findings or observation we may have. If anything looks less than road-ready, we’ll talk you through any recommended repairs or services and their costs. We’ll also help you determine which repairs (if any) require immediate attention, and which you may want to plan for at a future time.
Free with any service, our 29-point inspection includes (but is not limited to):
- Your tires—We check air pressure, tread depth, speed ratings and load capacity to ensure you have the right tire for your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations
- Your fluids— We check oil, transmission, coolant, power steering, washer, and brake fluid for needed maintenance
- Under your hood—We check engine start and crank inspection to determine battery life, as well as your lights, filters, wipers, and more.
- Under your foot—We check your front- and rear brakes to look for signs of wear
Why are tune-ups important?
Periodic vehicle check-ups will keep you aware of any necessary repairs, helping you and your car run smoothly.
How often should I get a tune up?
We recommend you have your vehicle checked at every oil change so you are alerted to any changes to your vehicle's condition.
