Tune Up

 

A well tuned vehicle is more efficient on gas, functions and handles better and is easier on the environment. By having regular tune-ups you can keep your engine working hand-in-hand with the rest of your car’s powertrain.

To get optimum car performance and help to extend the life of your vehicle, schedule regular tune-ups at an Active Green + Ross Complete Tire & Auto Centre nearest you.

Why Do I Need This Service?

A well tuned engine delivers the best balance of power and fuel economy and produces the lowest level of emissions. Modern engines compensate for worn parts to a degree, giving you the sense that everything is fine with your car.

But, keeping your engine tuned will restore your car to its normal operating state, and will contribute to the overall efficiency of the engine and emissions systems.

Typical Service

There are many areas involved in performing a tune-up on a vehicle.

  • For some vehicles, it is recommended that you inspect the spark plugs on a regular basis to prevent them from seizing inside the engine.
  • The typical replacement interval for spark plugs ranges from 50,000 to 160,000 kilometers, but it varies based on spark plug and vehicle type. Check your owner’s manual.
  • Replace any other ignition system and/or emissions system parts as needed/recommended.
  • Replace the fuel and air filters regularly.
