Car Tune-Up and Maintenance - All Tune Car Care Centre

auto tune up vancouver Your car should receive a tune-up, often referred to as a "major service" every two years or 40,000 kilometers, whichever comes first. During this tune-up your car will receive some new parts that will hopefully keep it out of the shop for a while.
Keep your engine running at its peak performance. When your car is properly tuned, the ignition system, fuel system, emission system and the computer system are all working together. This results in peak combustion chamber efficiency, saving you money at the gas pump and making sure your car is emitting a minimum of greehouse gases and pollutants.

Come in today and have your Vehicle Tuned Up at All Tune by our certified automotive mechanics.

Our complete tune-up service includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • Replace the fuel filter. If you have a fuel-injection system, regular cleaning isn't necessary unless the injectors are clogged.
  • Change the spark plugs (unless they're platinum, in which case you have 30,000 more kms to go). Also examine the spark plug wires and replace as needed. A new set of high-quality wires is worth the cost. They may be permanently attached to the distributor cap, so it will have to be changed as well.
  • Replace the distributor cap and rotor if your car has them (some newer models with distributorless ignition don't).
  • Change the points and condenser if you have an older car (roughly 1978 or older) that doesn't feature electronic ignition. You'll actually want your points changed, or at least adjusted, every six months or so (if they're changed, check the ignition timing as well).
  • Check the ignition timing and adjust as needed.
  • Adjust the valves as needed (unless your car has hydraulic valves). Be sure to replace the valve-cover gasket as well, especially if you see oil on top of your engine.
  • Check the belts. Replace if worn.
  • Check the fluids under the hood and replenish as necessary. Change the oil and oil filter if it's been 5,000 kms since the last oil change.
  • Replace the air filter, which should be changed between major services - every 15,000 miles - as well.
  • Adjust the clutch, if you have a manual transmission (although some cars now sport self-adjusting clutches).
  • Service the battery, adding distilled water (if required), cleaning terminals and cable ends.
  • Replace the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. It can make your car run rough or stall if it gets clogged, and it's cheap and easy to replace.
