Why Tune-Up’s Are So Important to Your Car, Truck, Van or SUV
Ace Auto Repair in West Jordan, Utah wants you to be an informed car owner. A tune-up is the perfect way to catch small problems before they become large ones, and to keep your vehicle running like a well oiled machine. We have created this short list of easy ways that may hint that it is time for your vehicle’s next tune-up.
Check Your Owner’s Manual for the Tune-Up Schedule
Your owner’s manual should tell you when it is time to do a full tune-up. Some owner’s manuals come with a scheduler so you can easily stay up to date with your vehicle’s scheduled preventative maintenance. Here at Ace Auto Repair we recommend to do a tune up on your vehicle every 25,000 – 30,000 miles. It is very important to keep up to date with your vehicle’s tune-ups in order to maintain your vehicle’s high performance.
Decreased Gas Mileage
You may suddenly notice that you have to fill up your gas tank more often than before. This is one of the big signs that you may need some routine maintenance done. Your vehicle could have a bad fuel injector, a dirty fuel filter, or a problem with the spark plugs. When you notice your car guzzling gas faster than normal, it is wise to have your vehicle serviced quickly!
Lack of Power
You may notice some hesitation when trying to accelerate from a complete stop, or when going from low to high speeds. That feeling you’re only running on one cylinder or two cylinders. If you experience a lack of power while you are out driving on highways or city streets, it’s probably time for a tune up.
Engine Running “Rough” or Vehicle Stalling When Stopped
Have you ever been out driving, and all the sudden, your car stalls out on you. If you experience a rough shaking of the car, or if the engine dies when the car comes to a stop, this would be a good time to take your vehicle in for a free diagnostics so our ASE technicians can determine if all you need is a tune up.
Check Engine Light or Service Engine Light On or Flashing
If your vehicle’s “Check engine light” or “service engine soon” light remains on after the initial start-up of your vehicle, it is time to take it in to your automotive repair shop. Our team here at Ace Auto Repair has the right tools and technicians to provide you information as to why your service engine soon or check engine lights may be on.
