Tune up
 – This is an obsolete term. Most vehicle manufacturers specify what should be performed at certain time or mileage intervals. If your vehicle has a problem, you should describe that problem to your technician, and let the technician tell you what need to be performed. Cars are getting more and more maintenance free, for lack of a better phrase. There are no more points and condensers like in the olden days, which needed to be filed and or replaced every 10-15k miles. Today’s Ignition systems use high tech spark plugs and coil on plug systems which also have longer life expectancy. Keep up with your vehicles scheduled maintenance and if you have a problem, let us know what the symptoms are and let’s get your vehicle back to 100%.
