Experienced drivers know that it will be necessary at some point in time to tune up their car so that it keeps performing well. It’s important to tune up your car to help maintain its power and performance levels. Preventative maintenance will keep your car running and performing stronger and longer!

But do you know how to tell when you need a tune up? Here are some signs indicating that it’s time tune up your car:

  • The “service engine soon” light illuminates while driving.
  • You notice rough idling or stalling when you accelerate or a brake.
  • Fuel efficiency has decreased and you filling up the tank more often.
  • You notice shifting problems, such as slipping, jerking, or being hard to put into gear.
  • You feel excessive or unusual vibrations in the steering wheel or seat.

So if you’re wondering how to tell when you need a tune up on your, read your owner’s manual. The typical recommendation is:

  • Older cars with non-electric ignition systems—about 10,000 to 12,000 miles to replace spark plugs, filters, and fluids.
  • Newer vehicles equipped with electronic ignitions and fuel injectors, computer processors, and sensors, the recommended tune up should be anywhere between 25,000 to 100,000 miles.

A tip for drivers: Schedule a diagnostic test at least once a year. This gives your mechanic the opportunity to pinpoint internal problems in the operating systems, engine, transmission, oil and gas tanks, and exhaust system. By taking care of problems while they are small, you will be saving time and money on costly auto repairs.
