What is a Tune Up?

If you’ve been driving for any considerable amount of time you’ve most likely heard the phrase ‘a tune-up’ in regards to a vehicle.

What exactly is a tune-up?

Simply put, it’s a way to update a few systems in your car to make sure they’re running efficiently. A standard tune-up will address 3 things:

  • Air-Nobody likes dirty air. Neither does your vehicle.  Change your air filter and the vehicle will perform better!
  • Fuel-clean fuel will make your engine happier. A new fuel filter will do the trick!
  • Spark-Good luck starting a fire with damp matches. Spark plugs give ignite the air and fuel and make the vehicle go. Make sure you’ve got adequate firing power with spark plug replacement!
