Tune-up

Your car or light truck should receive a tune-up every two years or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. During a tune-up, your car or light truck will receive some new parts that will hopefully keep it out of the service repair shop for a while.

spark plug tune up
One of the main reasons people bring a vehicle in for a tune-up is because they are experiencing some kind of driveability problem. Symptoms such as hard starting, stalling, hesitation, misfiring, poor fuel economy, or lack of power are seldom cured by a new set of spark plugs and a few turns of a screwdriver. Every tune-up should include a comprehensive performance check to verify that no driveability problems or trouble codes exist. Other areas that should be included is an emissions check. Thirty-five states now have some type of annual vehicle emissions inspection program, and all but two include a tailpipe emissions check. Most mechanics will check EGR valve operation, the PCV valve, and make a visual inspection of other emission control components and plumbing. But unless an actual emissions performance check is made at the tailpipe, there is no way to know whether or not the vehicle will meet applicable emission standards. An emissions check is a must.

 

Tune-Ups for Cars & Light Trucks

 

As with all preventive maintenance performed on an automobile, tune-ups can prevent myriad problems from occurring on a vehicle. car truck tune-up serviceThe filters replaced can clog with use and prevent flow, starving the engine of fuel or air. Spark plugs have a recommended service lifetime of either 30,000 miles or, in the case of platinum or iridium plugs, 60,000 to 100,000 miles (96,000 to 160,000 km), and old spark plugs may cause engine misfire.

Here are a few areas that require attention:

 

  • Changing of the spark plugs. Also examination of the spark plug wires and replace as needed.


  • Check the belts. Replace if worn. Most cars today use a single serpentine belt in place of individual belts to drive all accessories. Vehicles with high mileage (near 90,000 miles or more), may want to consider changing the timing belt as well.serpentine belt replacement


  • Change the engine oil and oil filter if it’s been 3,500 miles since the last oil change.


  • Check all fluid levels under the hood and replenish as necessary. Fluids to check include: Automatic Transmission Fluid, Brake Fluid, Coolant (Anti-freeze), and Power Steering Fluid.


  • Lubricate the front suspension such as ball joints, control arms, bushings, tire rod ends, etc. also lightly oil door hinges and latches.


  • Check safety items such as all lights are in working order, and windshield and rear window wiper blades are like-new.


  • Replace the air filter, which should be changed between major services–every 15,000 miles–as well.

 

  • Change fuel filter and clean fuel injectors.


  • Service the battery, cleaning terminals and cable ends. Inspect Battery Cables.
