Tune-Up Engine Service from Olin's Auto Service
Each and every vehicle requires specific maintenance services at specific intervals. Here at Olin's Auto Service, we know what your car needs, because we know cars. We will determine the right tune-up maintenance service by learning how you use and treat your vehicle, what driving conditions your vehicle is expected to be in, and the automotive manufacturer's specifications regarding your specific model.
At the surface, we will be sure to:
- Do a complete visual inspection of your engine components
- Replace any filters (Examples: fuel filter, transmission filter, air filter, cabin filter, etc.)
- Replace your spark plugs
- Inspect your belts (including your timing belt)
- Remove carbon deposits from your fuel injectors
- Restore the overall health of your engine
If you're noticing a loss in gas mileage, or reduced power from your car, it's time for a tune-up. Other signs include an engine running "rough," engine stalls when stopping or in park, engine "knocking" while accelerating or additional engine noises after the ignition is turned off, and of course, when the check-engine light or service-engine light is on.
Small things help avoid big expenses
You may be thinking that a tune-up is a small thing, and that your car doesn't need attention until it's rattling away at you. While the squeaky wheel gets the grease, the wheel which gets grease routinely never squeaks nor breaks down as fast. In the end, a small thing like a tune-up can add tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of miles of life to your car's more expensive parts. A tune-up today could mean the difference of no new transmission tomorrow or "Oh my gosh, it's going to cost how much to replace that piston?!" But don't take our word for it. Ask anyone who has snapped a timing belt (that could have been replaced during a tune-up), and had to get a new engine after the pistons wreaked havoc on the inside.
