Most drivers know that if they want their vehicles to keep performing well, that a tune up will eventually become necessary. A car tune up, basic preventive maintenance, not only helps maintain the power and performance of your vehicle but can also help it last you for many more miles!

So how do you know when you need a tune up for your car? If it’s time for a tune, you may start to notice one or more of the problems listed below:

  • The check engine light comes on while driving.
  • You notice that the engine is idling rough or it stalls when you accelerate or put on the brakes.
  • You are filling up the tank more often because of a significant decrease in fuel efficiency.
  • You notice problems while shifting, such as slipping, jerking, or hard to shift.
  • You feel excessive or unusual vibrating in the steering wheel or seat.

Be sure to read the service guidelines for each vehicle you own, like how often a tune up is needed and what it includes may vary depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Older cars with non-electric ignition systems typically require a tune up about every 10,000 to 12,000 miles. The tune up should include replacing spark plugs, filters and most fluids. It’s actually harder to determine when a tune up is needed for today’s newer vehicles because of electronic ignitions and fuel injectors, computer processors, and sensors. Be sure to check your owner’s manual as many of today’s cars can go anywhere from 25,000 to 100,000 miles before needing a tune up.

A word of advice: To really know when you need a tune up for your car, schedule a diagnostic service at your preferred auto shop. This will enable your mechanic to pinpoint any pending problems and take care of them before they turn into a major repair.
