In years past, a car tune up simply meant having your vehicle serviced occasionally to keep it running. Now, a tune up is not enough for today’s modern cars. The term “car tune up” is still used to refer to the preventive maintenance periodically performed on a vehicle to ensure it continues to perform well.

So what does a car tune up include? Here is a shortlist:

  • Replace Air filter. A dirty air filter will decrease performance and cause other problems. It should generally be replaced at least once per year.
  • Clean or replace spark plugs. Tune-ups may also include the distributor cap and rotor, replacement of the fuel filter, oxygen sensor, PCV valve, and spark plug wires.
  • Check Operating Systems. Other issues that may need maintenance include brakes, oil, and other fluids.
  • A/C System. Have this checked at the same time as your scheduled car tune up.

If you are not sure what a car tune up includes, check your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Once you get into the habit of keeping track of your car's regular maintenance schedule, the idea of a tune-up will become comforting rather than intimidating. You will gain confidence in your car when it is properly maintained.
