Standard Tune Up
We are trying hard to get away from the words Tune Up, as the days of distributors, points and carburetors are long gone. However some folks still insist on the terminology, so we have dedicated this section to them. Please note that we prefer to refer to your vehicles manufacturer recommendations for mileage and time intervals for services, as this method has proven to be more precise for each vehicle rather then spending your hard earned money on a generic "Tune Up"
However if you want your vehicle to last as long as possible and be in top condition, 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 vehicle. The majority of vehicles are in need of a tune-up service every 60,000 miles. Our shop offers dependable, affordable and quality tune-ups, as well as various other auto repair and maintenance services.
A regular routine tune-up can give you protection against the major engine problem by locating and replacing worn components, like fuel filters and spark plugs. Having a regular tune-up schedule will assist your vehicle in boosting efficiency, preserving a higher fuel mileage and lasting much longer.
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 60,000 miles or more. 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.
