Even with today’s newer cars and advanced technology, the answer to this question is still “Yes!" Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a tune up service at around 100,000 miles. Your mechanic can test the performance of your vehicle to determine just what is needed in your car tune up service.

Is your car sluggish when trying to go up a hill or passing a slower vehicle? Has a dashboard light come on and you don’t know why? Before summer’s hot temperatures are here in full force, be sure to get a car tune up now to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape.

Because today’s vehicles are designed with computer processors, microchips and sensors, the best way to determine whether your car needs a tune up is to ask your auto mechanic to run a car diagnostic test. This is done using a specialized computer that scans the sensors and operating systems, producing codes which will indicate a current or a pending problem.

So is a tune up necessary? The tune-up checklist should include both preventative and restorative engine assessments, including an inspection of the engine, an analysis of your vehicle’s performance, and any needed adjustments made to the operating systems.

Here is a car tune up checklist:

  • Spark plugs.
  • Fuel pump and filter.
  • Fuel injectors.
  • Timing.
  • PCV valve.
  • Points and condenser.

There is not a one-size-fits-all car tune up procedure. It will be uniquely based on your vehicle’s age, the number of miles driven, and its maintenance history.
