Tune Up - A general health check of your car and its various operating systems.
What We Do
At South Ogden Tunex, we want to make sure everything is running smoothly under the hood. Regular auto repair and maintenance is necessary in order to stretch the mileage of your vehicle, keeping you safely on the road for longer. Your car is a complex machine and there are many pieces working together to create a healthy engine system. If one or more of these constituent parts aren’t in proper working order, it can put undue strain on your vehicle and lead to costly repairs. For this reason, it is important to take your car in for a tune up as a preventative measure.
When Do I Need a Tune Up?
How often your vehicle requires a tune up largely depends on its age. Here is a simple standard to follow:
Diligence with your car tune ups ensures that your engine continues to start and run well. If tune ups are neglected, it can cause the following problems:
- Older Vehicles - If you have an older (or high-mileage) vehicle with a non-electric ignition, you should consider a tune up every 10,000 to 12,000 miles, or once a year. Whichever comes first.
- Newer Vehicles - For newer vehicles, it is advisable to get a tune up every 30,000 miles until your vehicle exceeds 100,000 miles. At that point, tune ups should become more routine.
- Sluggish Acceleration or Loss of Power
- Rough Gear Shifts
- Poor Fuel Mileage
- Hard Starts
- Vibrations and Engine ‘Chugging’
- Poor Braking Function
