The term “tune-up” has been used for many decades to describe service done to your car to ensure it runs smoothly and efficiently. A tune-up may involve just one or two services, or it may include several different types of services. As your vehicle’s components wear out, get clogged and become damaged from wear and tear on your car, you will need a tune up, and that’s when it time to bring your car into the Plano, Texas AAMCO. AAMCO Transmission and Auto Repair of Plano will get your tune-up done quickly, and we’ll get it done right, so you can get back to your regular schedule as quickly as possible.
When You Need a Tune-Up
Regular engine maintenance—known as a tune-up—should be performed on a regular basis to keep your car in tip-top working condition and to avoid costlier repairs down the road. But you may be wondering what is considered a “regular basis” when it comes to tune-ups, and how will you know when you car is due for this type of service. Your owner’s manual is a great source of information to let you know what your car needs when, or you can contact one of the friendly, professional team members at the AAMCO in Plano. We’ll be happy to let you know what the recommended schedule is for your make and model of vehicle, so you can get your tune-up scheduled right away if necessary.
You can also monitor your gas mileage to know if your car is in need of a tune-up. If you notice that your gas mileage is dropping by 10% or more, it’s definitely time to get a tune-up. If this seems like something you’re not wiling to do or simply don’t have the time to monitor how far you travel on a tank of gas, then just give us a call, and we’ll do our best to determine if it’s time your car has a tune-up. One very good indication that your car needs a tune-up in addition to poor gas mileage is if it feels as though it’s lost power and is making unusual noises. At the first sign of lost power and noises, please bring your vehicle into the Plano area AAMCO; the longer you wait to have your car tuned up, the more costly repairs may become.
