Tune Up's

Regular auto care is key to maintaining a long-lasting vehicle. Help the environment and get your oil changed regularly, get engine tune-ups and your tires rotated to help keep your vehicle running smoothly. A properly maintained vehicle will run more efficiently, will be safer and will last longer.

Since the 1990s, vehicles are heavily monitored and controlled by computers and sensors, and to a great extent "tune" themselves (until the dreaded "check engine" light comes on).

These vehicles, however, still require regular maintenance. The manufacturer's recommended intervals can be found in the owner's manual. Each make, model and year is unique, and maintenance requirements will depend on what you drive, how often, and under what conditions.

What's now advertised as a "tune-up" at repair shops coast to coast is designed to keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently. This usually consists of changing the spark plugs, inspecting and replacing air and fuel filters as required, and in some cases extras such as fuel-injection service.

A tune-up is one of the more major service intervals, whereas something like an oil change is done on a routine basis two or three times a year depending of course on mileage, says Peter Block of Victoria Transmission and Auto Care.

As for a tune-up, which includes changing the spark plugs, different vehicles have different servicing requirements. Some have really long life plugs, and some are shorter life. With a little Kia for example, the tune-up maintenance interval is 60,000 kms or less, whereas a lot of the premium vehicles can go up into the 100,000-km mark before a first major tune-up.

Maintenance items are often discovered on checks conducted during a good-quality oil change. When it comes time to replace the spark plugs, in many cases the air and fuel filter have already been looked after.
