No matter how new your vehicle is, eventually, it will need a tune-up. While vehicle maintenance tasks may seem like additional time and hassle, it’s a responsible decision to save you from headaches in the future. A tune-up is a preventative maintenance that includes a thorough inspection to see where your vehicle is excelling and where it may need some extra love. As a rule of thumb, most drivers should get a tune-up at least once a year. However, depending on driving conditions, you may need to schedule an additional one to keep performance efficient.
What is included during a tune-up at Luke’s Auto Service?
Our ASE Certified experts customize your tune-up based on your vehicle’s specific needs.
A general tune-up consists of:
- A comprehensive bumper-to-bumper inspection.
- A fluid-top off or fluid flush in severe cases.
- Replacing all filters, if needed.
- Inspecting the battery.
- Changing the spark plugs.
- Checking the tire pressure and tread wear.
- And more.
A tune-up may not be required, but they are an excellent opportunity to ensure your vehicle operates at peak efficiency. If your commute involves a lot of stop-and-go traffic or you’re transporting a heavy load, you may need to schedule a tune-up more often.
How can you tell whether your vehicle is overdue for a tune-up?
- The engine runs rough while you’re idling or accelerating.
- Your car has started to stall.
- You’re suddenly starting to get bad gas mileage.
- The steering wheel is vibrating.
