What is a Tune-up?

Unlike an oil service, tune-ups are a larger service that are typically required every 30,000 miles or so, depending on the age of your vehicle and your driving habits. Just think of a tune-up as a makeover for your vehicle - it checks major components for signs of wear and tear and determines if anything needs to be repaired or replaced to avoid major breakdowns and keep your vehicle running at its best. 

If you are wondering when your vehicle will be due for a tune-up, the best thing to do is to refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual. The owner’s manual will lay out when a tune-up is due for your vehicle and what services are included. You can also bring your vehicle into the experts here at New Concept Auto Service and we can determine if your vehicle needs a tune-up and what may be included for your make and model. 

Even though tune-ups are usually needed on an interval basis, they can sometimes be needed prior to the recommended mileage due to excessive driving. Certain symptoms can be an indication that your vehicle is due for a tune-up, and those signs include the following: 

  • Lack of overall performance
  • Decrease in fuel efficiency
  • Car constantly stalling
  • Engine running rough
  • Start up troubles

So if you do start experiencing any of the problems listed above, give us a call here at New Concept Auto Service. We will be happy to take a look at your vehicle and provide you with an estimate of what services or repairs may be needed to restore your vehicle back to top working condition. Some typical tune-up services include spark plug replacement, fuel filter replacement, fuel injector service, battery inspection and service, and timing belt or drive belt replacement.

A tune-up not only increases overall vehicle performance, but will also boost fuel efficiency and help save you money on major repairs down the road. For all of your vehicle's needs, the experts here at New Concept Auto Service are here to help.
