What Is An Engine Tune-Up?

A tune-up is a process of inspecting, correcting, and adjusting the parts involved in the engine combustion process. It is a type of maintenance that is vital to ensure your engine and ignition operate smoothly. A tune-up can include the following:

  • Replace spark plugs
  • Change engine air filter
  • Replace fuel filter
  • Adjust ignition timing
  • Clean throttle body and fuel system
  • Change the PCV valve
  • … & more (as needed).

A car tune-up can vary from car to car, depending on model, age, and the wear and tear it has endured. When a professional technician recommends certain services, it is most likely a priority. We believe in full transparency at our auto repair shop, which is why we are happy to provide any explanations.

Newer cars don’t need as frequent tune-ups as older vehicles. Depending on mileage and age, your tune-up may be more complex. Just like when anything gets old, parts will need to be replaced.
