Your vehicle requires a regular tune-up for optimal performance and efficiency. Our mechanics at E & S Automotive Service in San Jose, CA can perform preventative maintenance, including tune-ups on your vehicle. Most vehicles need a tune-up every 30,000 miles. We provide quality, affordable tune-ups, as well as other auto repair services in San Jose, CA and surrounding Bay Area cities.
What do tune-ups do?
A routine tune-up can easily protect against major engine problems by finding and changing worn components such as spark plugs and fuel filters. Keeping a regular tune-up schedule will help your vehicle last much longer, preserve a higher fuel mileage, and boost efficiency.
Why is a tune-up service necessary?
Just like anything else, your vehicle has parts that have a life expectancy. These parts and their life expectancy are shown in your owner’s manual with specific manufacturer benchmarks, about every 30,000 miles. While these parts may last longer than the suggested time frame, it is a good idea to have them checked by a qualified mechanic at E & S Automotive Service on a regular basis. If these parts are not regularly inspected and car diagnostic is not performed, a major issue could occur.
A complete tune-up done consists of:
Replacing the air filter
Switching out the gas filters
Installing new spark plugs and spark plug wires
Inspecting the distributor cap and putting in a new one if needed
Examining the blades and installing a new rotor if the old one has splits, burning or carbon build-up
Checking the valve-cover gasket and adjusting the valves
Inspection and filling all fluids
Switching out Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve, if plugged
At E & S Automotive Service, we know that preventative maintenance such as tune-ups can go a long way in saving money over the life of your vehicle. Make an appointment for a tune-up today to avoid car problems and extend the life of your car!
