A tune-up can include the following services:

  • A thorough inspection of your entire engine and its mechanisms
  • Replacement of faulty or worn electronic engine components such as oxygen sensors and electronic control module components
  • Replacement of faulty or worn spark plugs, air filters, and fuel filters
  • Adjustment of your vehicle’s idle and timing
  • Adjustment of the clutch (on vehicles equipped with a manual transmission)

Tune ups are important because normal vehicle usage causes various parts of your engine to lose their efficiency because of under-the-hood temperature and vibration.

  • Regular tune-ups help maintain vehicle safety and performance by ensuring that worn or faulty parts are replaced promptly
  • Tune-ups can help you achieve maximum fuel efficiency and vehicle performance

Tune-ups are an important part of regular vehicle maintenance and should be scheduled annually. You should schedule a tune-up sooner if you notice any of the following:

  • Your gas mileage is decreasing
  • You experience a loss of power or torque
  • Your engine sounds like it’s running rough or stalls out at a stop
  • You hear knocking or pinging sounds when accelerating or after the ignition is turned off
  • Your check engine light remains on after your initial start
