A tune-up is loosely defined as the adjustment of various components of an internal combustion engine to achieve maximum performance. An internal combustion engine essentially works by using the force created from controlled explosions which take place in the engine’s cylinders to turn the drive shaft and wheels.
Tuffy’s Maintenance Tune-Up Service will make sure that this chain of events happens at the right time with optimum efficiency. The engine timing, mixture of fuel and air, spark plug firing sequence, and emission control all have to happen in a precisely timed sequence in order for the engine to run properly.
During a tune-up, your Tuffy Automotive Maintenance Specialist will check, adjust, and replace the following components as needed:
- Ignition System
- Spark Plugs and Wires
- Rotor Cap
- PCV Valve
- Fuel Filter
- Fuel Injectors
- Air Filter
Why does my vehicle need a tune-up?
Common factors that cause engine problems include clogged fuel injectors, dirty air and fuel filters, corroded spark plugs, and bad plug wires.
Failure of any component within the internal combustion system can result in a number of problems, including reduced fuel economy, decreased engine performance, higher emissions, and even engine failure. Tuffy’s Maintenance Tune-Up Service includes an evaluation of the entire system to help identify and correct any potential problems.
