How to Know When Your Car Needs a Tune-Up

Working under the hood

If your vehicle isn’t running at its best, it’s easy to assume that a tune-up could do the trick. However, as automotive technology has progressed, a tune-up is not a one size fits all solution for every vehicle and its specific needs. In order to truly discover the root of the problem, it’s important to begin with a vehicle inspection. Essentially, the inspection is a “checkup” for your car and provides understanding as to what is causing performance issues.

Today, elements of a traditional tune-up might not be necessary to fix problems such as jerking, stalling, strange noises, or reduced power. Rather than telling your technician that you need a tune-up, tell him or her the symptoms you’re experiencing in order to discover the cause.

What are the signs that might make you think your vehicle needs a tune-up?

  • A misfiring engine
  • Stalling or hesitating
  • Strange noises
  • Vehicle jerking
  • Exhaust odor
  • Sluggishness upon acceleration
  • Inefficient fuel economy
  • Warning lights
