In order to keep your car running in peak condition, it is a good idea to incorporate regular tune ups into your vehicle maintenance schedule. Experts recommend a tune up every 30,000 miles for cars manufactured after the early 1980s, and every 15,000 miles for any car built earlier. Getting a tune up not only can extend the life of your vehicle, but can also ensure that your car is in top condition and in proper working order every time you drive it.
What does a tune up include?
When you bring your car in for an engine tune up, it’s like taking your child to the doctor for a check up. Your service technician will check the following things to ensure that everything is running as it should be:
- Spark plugs- The technician will inspect the spark plugs and make sure they don’t look worn. They will also make sure that the spark plugs’ insulator firing noses are the correct color (light tan or gray), s any other color can indicate a serious engine problem. In addition to the visual appearance of your car’s spark plugs, the technician will also test their performance and inspect the wires to make sure they are not cracked or damaged.
- Fuel injection system- Your technician will take a look at the fuel filter and make sure it isn’t clogged or dirty. He or she will also inspect the fuel pump, as well as the engine’s fuel injectors to ensure that everything is in proper working order.
- Timing- The technician will adjust the engine’s timing and idle, if necessary.
- Additional services- To top off your tune up, the technician will check the PCV valve for clogs or leaks and inspect all the points of the vehicle as well as the condenser.
