Tune-ups

A tune-up is essential to vehicle maintenance. It helps prevent problems, while identifying and replacing worn parts. Maintaining a regular tune-up schedule will help your vehicle last longer, as well as get better gas mileage and performance. Most vehicles require regularly scheduled tune-ups around every 30,000 miles. Check your vehicle's owner's manual to see if this is correct for your vehicle.
