Engine Tune Up Boise

Routine Maintenance: The Truth About Engine Tune Ups

While reading up on important routine maintenance for your vehicle, you have probably come across the term "engine tune up." For decades, engine tune ups have been an integral part of long-term vehicle maintenance and repairs. But it may not be what you think.

An engine tune-up isn't just a single service. Instead, the term refers to a collection of several services that are bundled together for general preventative maintenance purposes. You can think of it similarly to your annual doctor's checkup. Technicians will go through a check list to inspect various aspects of your car and address common maintenance services.

Originally, engine tune ups included more in-depth repairs. Older engines used finnicky carburetors that needed regular adjustments and other parts that needed routine attention from mechanics. Modern engines, however, are much more consistent and reliable. But they still need some regular services to make sure they keep their peak performance and efficiency.

Several services may be included with an engine tune up. One of the most common services is an engine air filter replacement. Installing a fresh filter helps your engine get the fresh, cool air it needs. An engine tune up can also include installation of fresh spark plugs. Spark plugs usually need to be replaced around the 100,000-mile mark. Your technician may also inspect the engine's fuel system for clogs or leaks. And naturally, a tune up will typically include topping fluids like engine oil.
