Car Tune-Up

Car-Tune-UpTraditional ‘tune-ups’ involving the replacement of parts and improving the performance of your ignition and fuel system may be long gone, (unless you still have an older vehicle of course), but there are plenty of efficiencies to be gained by bringing your car in for a tune-up.

Having your vehicle serviced and inspected periodically is a good way to extend its life and keep it operating efficiently. It helps prevent problems, while identifying and replacing worn parts.  Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to see the recommendations for your vehicle. A thorough tune-up performed by a technician at Harris Tire includes:

  • Replacing the air filter
  • Replacing the fuel filter(s)
  • Installing new spark plugs and replacing any worn spark plug wires
  • Inspecting and installing a new distributor cap if one is needed
  • Inspecting and installing a new rotor if the old one has cracks, burning or carbon build-up
  • Inspecting the valve-cover gasket and adjusting the valves (on vehicles with adjustable valves)
  • Checking and topping off all fluids
  • Checking the battery and cleaning the terminals
  • Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve replaced, if clogged
