Most cars need a tune-up every two years or 30,000 miles whichever comes first. Even if your car appears to be running fine, it’s still an essential part of car maintenance to complete a tune up. During a tune-up, your mechanic should inspect all the systems of your car to find small or more serious mechanical problems before they cause serious damage to your car or truck. Repairs made during a tune-up ensure that your car runs optimally. It can also greatly improve your cars gas mileage. A tune-up keeps your car from working harder than it should, which in turn requires less fuel to run. Regular tune-ups are a very important part of vehicle maintenance. They increase your vehicle’s efficiency and extend the life of your car or truck.
