Performance Auto Care can and does perform all kinds of tune-ups, from spark plugs, to fuel and air filters, to any maintenance item that a car needs. It is very important for cars to go through routine tune-ups in order for them to stay in good condition and run properly.
What is a tune up?
A tune up will always replace: spark plugs, fuel filter, spark plug wires, ignition rotor and distributor cap (if the car is so equipped). Additionally, the throttle bore and throttle plate are cleaned and adjusted. Performing this maintenance keeps clean air and fuel moving into the engine, in addition to ensuring that the spark plugs ignite the fuel at optimal levels. This can help the fuel mileage and get the car back to its original running conditions.
When do I perform a tune up?
It depends on how your car is equipped. Platinum tipped spark plugs can last up to 100,000 miles. Cheaper plugs may last only 30,000 miles. In the cars owners manuel it will tell you when a tune-up is needed and how often it should be performed. If there is any question as to whether or not your car needs a tune-up please feel free to give us a call and we can help with any and all of your vehicle questions and needs.
