What's the difference between an auto tune-up and regular vehicle maintenance?
While regular vehicle maintenance means performing services such as automotive repair, and automotive repair to make sure your vehicle runs the way it did when you first bought it, as the car manufacturer intended. An auto tune-up service is meant to enhance the vehicle's engine performance by replacing several parts to make an older vehicle run like new. If you are in the 21234 area, you can head to Tim's Automotive in Parkville for a tune-up mostly when you are having drivability issues; your vehicle is hard or is hesitating to start, isn't getting the mileage it used to, shows signs of emissions problems, or it simply doesn't have the power it once had. This can happen to any vehicle regardless of make, including Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler, and Dodge.
What does an auto tune-up service entail?
Oftentimes, an auto tune-up service consists of replacing your vehicle's spark plugs and performing other adjustments to restore engine performance. Different manufacturers have different intervals in which tune-ups or scheduled maintenance should be performed. If you have questions about whether your car, truck, or SUV needs a tune-up, give us a call. There are various vehicle parts we at Tim's Automotive can inspect to determine which services your vehicle needs, including:
- Battery voltage and charging voltage.
- Engine's various parts.
- Engine vacuum, to detect exhaust restrictions and air leaks.
- Exhaust emissions.
- Hoses and belts, all fluids (oil, power steering fluid, brake fluid, coolant, transmission fluid, etc.)
If the initial check-up reveals no major faults, the spark plugs, air filters, fuel filters, and fuel cap (if required) should be replaced for preventative maintenance. If your vehicle doesn't meet federal emissions standards, its oxygen sensor should be replaced as well. It is important to bring your vehicle in for routine maintenance regardless of its age, mileage, and make to make sure the car runs as smoothly as possible and to prevent small problems from getting bigger if they are not attended to.
