What is a Tune Up?

Once a year we visit a doctor for a checkup. These checkups are often called well visits. A car tune up is basically your car’s wellness visit. If you have recently moved, it can also be used as an excuse to introduce yourself and your vehicle to a new mechanic.

What happens during a Tune Up?

During a tune up, the auto repair technician usually completes the following tasks:

  • Checks the oil and coolant levels
  • Checks the engine and cabin air filters
  • Inspects the PCV valve
  • Looks at the spark plugs to determine their age and check for wear
  • Makes sure the spark plugs are working properly
  • Checks the ignition idle and timing and makes adjustments if necessary
  • Visually look over the fuel-system components of the engine- checking that the fuel filter is clean and clog free, that there is no damage to the fuel pump, and make sure the fuel injectors are free of deposits and grime

Once the technician has gone over your vehicle, they will let you know what, if anything, they found. If they found a problem, they will discuss your options with you. The maintenance recommendations will vary based on age, mileage, and your specific vehicle manufacturers recommendations.

How often should I bring my vehicle in for a Tune Up?

How often a vehicle should be seen varies from vehicle to vehicle based on age, mileage, and vehicle manufacturer. However, it is usually recommended to have a complete look over at least once per year for older vehicles, and once every two to three years for newer models. Your vehicle owner’s manual will have specific vehicle manufacturer-recommended schedules for tune-ups and other maintenance.
