When Is It Time For A Tune-Up?
You may need a tune-up if you are no longer getting as many miles to the gallon as you did before. In addition, if you notice that your car is not as powerful as it once was, that your engine starts to stall or that your engine makes an unusual noise during acceleration, speak to a mechanic as soon as possible. In addition, if the check engine light comes on in your car, a tune-up is likely necessary.
What Is Involved In A Tune-Up Service?
Not every auto shop handles tune-ups the same way, which is why it is a good idea to call first and find out what type of maintenance will be performed on your vehicle. In general, you can expect the following:
- Engine Inspection
- Spark Plug Replacement
- Air and Fuel Filter Replacement
Other services may be performed as well, depending on what your car needs. Make sure to talk over any issues you have noticed with the mechanic so that the automobile is properly checked out.
Why Are Tune-Ups Important?
There are several reasons why you want to have your car maintained on a regular basis. First, regular tune-ups help you avoid breaking down when you are out on the road. There are so many reasons that your car could stop working, and getting your car maintained on a schedule makes it less likely that you will have a problem. In addition, Utah certainly has its share of inclement weather. Your vehicle is more likely to get into an accident if there are issues with your brakes or tires. Getting them checked out during a tune-up can help you stay safe.
Car repairs can be very expensive. If you try and take care of issues before they become significant problems, you can save a lot of money. In part, that is what a tune-up is designed to do for your car. When your engine is having issues, the rest of your car could be affected as well. You extend the life of your car when you have regular maintenance performed on your vehicle.
Getting tune-ups on a regular basis shows that you are committed to extending the life of your car. Ultimately, taking this step means that you’ll save money in the long run.
