What Is a Car Tune-Up?

The nature of a car tune–up has changed 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, and worn spark plugs can all decrease engine performance and contribute to decreased gas mileage and performance.

So what does a car tune-up consist of? At Tires Plus a comprehensive tune-up package can be tailored to your needs. A tune-up can include replacing spark plugs, ignition wires/coil boots, air filter, external fuel filter, performing a fuel system cleaning and more. We will review the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance schedule before making recommendations based on your vehicle's needs.

How Often Does My Car Need a Tune-Up?

Regularly scheduled maintenance and inspections help you avoid bigger issues and repairs to your vehicle. Spark plugs fall into the category of maintenance where service intervals vary based on your vehicle specifications. The main factors that affect how often you need to replace spark plugs are your vehicle’s mileage and application/usage. If you aren’t sure when you need to bring in your vehicle for engine maintenance, use our online maintenance scheduling tool or contact your neighborhood Tires Plus to schedule a free inspection.
