If you’re experiencing problems with the performance of your vehicle, such as loss of power or rough idling, you may be wondering how do you know when it needs a tune up? In addition to the check engine light illuminating on the instrument panel, there are several other signs you may start to notice. To help your mechanic pinpoint a pending problem, schedule a car diagnostics so that a costly engine repair can be avoided.

So do you know what happens if you don’t get a tune up for your car?

  1. Loss of power
  2. Decrease in fuel efficiency
  3. Noisy engine
  4. Engine stalling
  5. Bad Exhaust Odors
  6. Ignition is turned off but the engine keeps running
  7. Engine idles rough

All vehicles, regardless of age or your driving habits, require routine tune ups to keep them running at top performance. Here are some suggestions concerning the frequency of tune ups:

  • Preventative Vehicle Maintenance—Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations as stated in the owner’s manual.
  • Driving habits—quick acceleration, hard braking, riding the brakes, driving short distances?
  • Climate and Road Conditions—driving on unimproved roads, or in extreme temperatures (hot or cold).

If the “Check Engine” light comes on, it typically means there is a fault with one of the systems. It usually isn’t critical, so you can keep on driving. Just check the oil pressure and coolant temperature gauges. If those lights illuminate, you should stop your car as quickly and safely as possible.
