As with all preventive maintenance performed on an automobile, tune-ups can prevent a myriad of problems from occurring on a vehicle. The filters can clog with use and prevent flow if not replaced when needed, starving the engine of fuel or air. Spark plugs have a recommended service lifetime of either 30,000 miles or, in the case of platinum or iridium plugs, 60,000 to 100,000 miles (96,000 to 160,000 km), and old spark plugs may cause engine misfire.
At Hunt and Knight, we will perform a visual examination of the engine to determine what problems or maintenance issues need to be addressed, install new spark plugs and, if needed, adjust the idle and timing, install an air and fuel filter package and clean the fuel system. We will then test drive your vehicle to assure that it is running properly.
