Your car's engine is made up of hundreds of components working together to make sure your vehicle starts and runs properly. With time, these components can wear out, resulting in a loss of performance and fuel efficiency. In this section of our website, you'll learn what a "tune-up" is, and tips to help you know when it's time for one. Our ASE Certified technicians are trained to work on today's high tech engines. Our goal is to affordably help you maintain your vehicle and extend its life.


The complexity of performing an engine tune-up has changed considerably over time, but the basics of how a gasoline engine works has not. Clean gas and air must be provided to the vehicle's cylinders where combustion initiated by a spark plug creates the power required to move your vehicle down the road. As part of the tune-up we inspect your vehicle’s engine and look for clogged fuel injectors, dirty air and fuel filters and corroded spark plugs. When dirt and deposits collect in these components, the amount of fuel delivered to the engine is restricted, leading to deterioration in performance and responsiveness, including decreased gas mileage.

Our ASE Certified technicians will remove dirt and deposits and replace the components necessary to ensure your vehicle maximizes its performance and gas mileage capabilities. Regular maintenance of your vehicle's engine and systems is the key to reliability, fuel efficiency, and effective engine performance and also mitigates the risk you will incur costly engine repair bills in the future.


It may be time for a tune-up if you notice one or more of these conditions when driving your vehicle:

  • your engine runs rough or stalls at a stop
  • a decrease in fuel efficiency
  • a loss of engine power
  • your check engine or maintenance light remain on after initial start
  • its been several years and you can’t remember if this service has ever been performed
