Spring is in the air, and that means fresh beginnings — even for your car. Routine maintenance items go further than tire changeovers and engine services. Tune-ups are integral to the overall health of your vehicle. Let’s take a look at what to expect with a tune-up service.
Opening The Hood
The initial inspection takes place as soon as our automotive technicians enter the vehicle. They will diagnose any abnormal noises within the ignition system and feel any variances with the fuel system while the car is idling. Once the vehicle is pulled into the shop, that is when our red seal technicians will open your hood and inspect the following:
- Spark plug gap
- Spark plug wires
- Battery condition
- Fuel lines/ filter
- Caps & rotors
While your car is in the shop, we always perform a 52 point inspection to ensure that the rest of your vehicle is operating correctly
Integrating tune-ups into a regular maintenance schedule will help to prevent:
- Major breakdowns
- Catch problems early
- Put more ‘pep’ in your step
- Maintain the resale value
- Lowering emissions
Having a reliable vehicle is essential for most of us living in the Okanagan to commute for work, groceries, or dropping kids off at school. Do it confidently, knowing that your vehicle is in peak condition.
