Hopefully, your vehicle survived the hot temperatures of summer. But now you need to make sure it is ready for the cooler temperatures of winter. Schedule a car tune up, also referred to as preventive maintenance schedule, to make sure that all the critical systems that keep your car operating with optimum power are cleaned and adjusted, or even replaced if necessary.

So what does a full tune up include? The best place to find that answer is in your owner’s manual. The manufacturer has listed the items necessary to keep your vehicle running smoothly. Of course, your trusted auto mechanic is also trained to know exactly what your vehicle needs.

There are eight issues that are typically part of a car tune up:

  • Replace bad spark plugs—Spark plugs in good condition should have light tan or gray insulator firing noses and enable your car to start quickly and efficiently.
  • Clean fuel pump and filter—Contaminants in fuel, like rust, dirt, and sediment, may damage the fuel system and engine. A clean fuel pump and filter keep things clean and functioning efficiently.
  • Clean fuel injectors—If the fuel injectors are blocked by debris, the efficiency of the spark plugs decrease as well as restrict the flow of fuel delivered to the engine.
  • Replace air filter—A dirty air filter blocks the flow of air to the engine that enables it to run properly.
  • Adjustment to engine timing—If the spark plug fires too soon or too late during the compression stroke, there will eventually be damage to the engine.
  • Clean PCV—If the PCV valve becomes clogged, the combustion gases remain in the engine causing backfiring rather than escaping through the exhaust system.
  • Clean or replace points and condenser—Mainly found in older cars, points and condensers help combust the gas. They need to be cleaned or replaced about every 20,000 miles. Newer models of vehicles now use ignition modules and coil packs.
  • Check operating systems and other—Other operating systems, such as brakes and suspension systems, and other components, such as the oxygen sensor, distributor cap, oil and coolant should all be checked and replaced as needed.

Giving your car a little extra attention with a car tune up will keep it reliable and trustworthy for many more miles!
