Keeping your truck in tune
What happens in a tune-up?
Your engine uses a series of interconnected components to deliver a spark, send fuel, and push airflow into the engine. If the controlling components wear out and fail to provide those three necessary elements, your engine will not properly complete the combustion cycle. To ensure your engine receives air, fuel and spark all at the right proportions, the skilled automotive technicians at your local Meineke Car Care Center can perform a tune up service on your vehicle at regular scheduled intervals. Details of an auto tune up service will include replacing the cap, rotor, spark plugs, wires, and PCV valve. Technicians will also double check to verify if your car requires air, oil, and fuel filter replacement.
How often should I schedule a tune-up?
To determine the best interval for regularly scheduled maintenance, your technician will first check the schedule provided by your vehicle manufacturer. After your tune up is performed, the technician can then determine the ideal timing for your next service appointment and provide a mileage number or date of when you should return.
Following the maintenance schedule for your vehicle model and engine type will help protect your car from engine misfires and other problems that could develop over time if left untouched.
Any time you notice hard start issues or declining performance, it is best to visit a repair shop and have a professional take a look. Often, it can be something small like a simple part replacement to restore the expected functionality of your vehicle.
