Tune – ups | GV Tires Vancouver
Vehicle tune-ups are an important preventative mechanical service. Regular tune-ups will help keep your vehicle’s engine performing, make the vehicle easier to start, improve fuel economy, lower emissions and restore lost power.
Your car’s manufacturer will specify how often tune-ups and other mechanical services should be done based on mileage intervals. If your check engine light is on, or you are experiencing problems with your vehicle such as shaking or rattling, difficulty starting the engine or poor gas mileage, and you haven’t had a tune up in a while, it’s time to come in.
During a tune up, various performance checks are done. Your vehicle’s major systems are checked by our knowledgeable staff. This includes hoses and belts, brake pads, oil and air filters, your vehicle’s battery and exhaust system and much more. Fluids such as engine oil, coolant, automatic transmission fluid, power steering fluid and brake fluid will also be checked to make sure all are at the proper level, and that they are all clear and appear in good condition.
Certain replacements may be necessary following a tune up. You may need new spark plugs, air filter, oil filter, timing belts, or wiper blades. You can trust our friendly and knowledgeable staff to give you honest information regarding what needs to be done. Often times, holding off on making repairs can cause bigger problems, such as parts failures, which will be more costly in the long run. It’s important for your safety on the road to ensure that all of your car’s systems are in working order and running smoothly. Coming in for regular tune-ups as recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer will keep the engine running as efficiently as possible for as long as possible and serve to extend the life of your vehicle.
