For many years, a vehicle tune-up service involved an engine inspection and, if necessary, a replacement carburetor and sparkplugs. And if your vehicle was made before 2000, a tune-up service remains the same.
However, if your vehicle was made after the year 2000, it’s unlikely to have a carburetor. With carburetors largely a thing of the past, today’s “tune-up” is actually a systems inspection accompanied by new sparkplugs.
So, what makes our inspection different (and better)? For starters, our professional technicians go beyond the typical checkup with a comprehensive 29-point checklist that covers every major system in your vehicle. Next, we’ll inspect your spark plugs to determine whether they need replacement.
After our inspection, we’ll share any findings or observation we may have. If anything looks less than road-ready, we’ll talk you through any recommended repairs or services and their costs. We’ll also help you determine which repairs (if any) require immediate attention, and which you may want to plan for at a future time.
Regular engine tune-ups bring power and efficiency back to your car. At Kwik Kar Auto Care Center, we visually inspect all of your engine components and install new parts (including spark plugs and fuel filters) as needed.
After a Kwik Kar tune up, you’ll discover your engine starts easier, runs smoother and is more efficient. A regular engine tune up will lower emissions, improve fuel economy and restore lost power.
When you get a car tune up based on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations, you’re investing in the long-term health of your car, saving you time and money.
Today’s cars can drive anywhere from 25,000 to 100,000 miles before needing a tune up. So, it’s always wise to check your manufacturer’s manual for suggested tune up maintenance.
As with any car maintenance frequency, it will probably depend greatly on how you drive your vehicle. Driving your vehicle in a safe manner and keeping it maintained with tune ups, oil changes, tire rotations and other regular maintenance items will most definitely help your vehicle stay safe and last longer.
