When should you get your vehicle tuned up?
Read the manual to know the ideal time to take your vehicle for a tune-up. A tune-up starts with checking the performance of the battery and the engine’s condition. The other steps involved in a tune up are:
· Checking the voltage of the battery
· Look out for leaking exhaust valves, bad cam and worn rings
· Scanning the fault codes for elimination
· Inspecting the ideal speed
· Testing the ignition timing to detect sensor problems
What you need to look out for?
· Belts and hoses will be examined to make sure that they’re fully functional
· If there is sludge in oil that’s a bad sign and should be addressed immediately
· The coolant needs to have the right balance of antifreeze instead of being filled with rust
· The brake fluid shouldn’t have any muck
· Get long life spark plugs so that you don’t have to change them often
The maintenance procedures vary for every vehicle, depending on the age, mileage and model. Contact All-Out Auto Repair for your vehicle’s engine tune-up today!
