WHAT DOES A TUNE-UP INCLUDE ?

 

Automobile manufactures have set forth in there recommended maintenance schedules, intervals for replacing spark plugs, PCV valves, fuel filters, etc. while recommending that other items related to engine operation be checked for proper operation and/or adjustment such as ignition timing, idle speed and other emission control related devises. When and only when the maintenance has been performed should a performance problem be addressed to correct any given set of problems. If an operating or performance problem is still present after the maintenance has been performed an engine analysis would then be required. Therefore the term tune-up indicates the need for routine maintenance and should not be associated with poor performance. If your vehicle experiences any operating, or performance problems between maintenance intervals, that specific problem should be addressed by performing an engine analysis to isolate that particular problem.
