What is a Tune Up?
Now that is a question that seems to change more each year. In the past tune ups simply consisted of changing spark plugs, ignition wires maybe setting the timing, checking points… simple things. Now with the complexity of engines and operating systems on vehicles tune ups and what a tune up consists has changed and continues to change. There’s still spark plugs in most vehicles and few still have ignition wires and distributor cap and rotor but in today’s cars carburetors are thing of the past we’ve gone to fuel injection and direct injection The fuel system has become a part of a tuneup. now were replacing fuel filters and cleaning injectors. General maintenance like fluid flushes, filters and inspections have never been more important.
