A tune-up is essential to vehicle maintenance. It helps prevent problems while identifying and replacing worn parts. Maintaining a regular tune-up schedule will help your vehicle last longer, as well as get better gas mileage and performance. Most vehicles require regularly scheduled tune-ups around every 30,000 miles. Check your vehicle's owner's manual to see if this is correct for your vehicle.

A thorough tune-up performed by a technician at Hillside Tire & Service 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
  • Replacing the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve, if clogged
