What is a tune-up?

An engine tune-up is the process of inspecting and replacing components of the engine that are essential to ignition and engine operation. It's a type of preventative maintenance performed on your vehicle to ensure it continues to perform well and even extend its life. A tune-up is typically scheduled at least once a year. A comprehensive tune-up can include:

  • Replace spark plugs and wires/coil boots

  • Set ignition timing - if applicable

  • Replace engine air filter (at least once a year)

  • Replace fuel filter - if applicable

  • Clean the throttle body - if applicable

  • Perform a fuel system cleaning

  • Replace distributor cap and rotor - if applicable (for older vehicles)

  • Replace PCV valve - if applicable
