At Car-X Tire & Auto, we recommend that you follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for regular tune-ups.
A standard tune-up done at the suggested maintenance interval will:
- Make an engine easier to start
- Improve fuel economy
- Lower emissions
- Restore lost power
Why you need a tune up…
Your car’s engine is made up of hundreds of complex components working together to ensure that your vehicle starts and runs properly. Over time, these components can wear out, resulting in a loss of performance and fuel economy.
At Car-X Tire & Auto, we examine your vehicle’s air filter when you stop in, and we recommend that you follow manufacturer’s recommendations for replacing such key components as fuel filters, PCV (Positive Crankcase Ventilation) valves, and spark plugs when they are no longer working at maximum efficiency. A tune up addresses all of these things.
Understanding how a tune up works…
The nature of an engine “tune up” has changed considerably over the years, but the basics of how a gasoline engine works has not. Clean gas and air needs to be driven to the vehicle’s cylinders where combustion initiated by a spark plug creates the power necessary to move a heavy vehicle.
Clogged fuel injectors, dirty air and fuel filters, worn out oil, and corroded spark plugs can all decrease engine performance and contribute to decreased gas mileage and performance.
