It’s that time of year for some spring cleaning, including your automobile. Schedule a car tune up for an inspection of the engine, to analyze the overall performance of your vehicle, and to have adjustments made to the operating systems as needed. The tune-up checklist should include both preventative maintenance and restorative engine assessment.

Of all the technological advances in the automotive industry, one of the most beneficial to vehicle owners and mechanics alike has been computerization. Using specialized software, diagnostic tools can accurately point to problem areas so that repairs can be made right the first time. Your mechanic doesn’t have to guess anymore!

So why is a diagnostic test important? It can indicate problems associated with the transmission, oil tank, gas tank, exhaust system and other components. It also indicates ignition timing issues, level of buildup in the combustion engine, fuel injector performance, condition of the ignition coils, engine rpm levels, air, and coolant temperature, crankshaft and camshaft position and throttle opening. In other words, it will let your mechanic know it’s time for a car tune up!

Here are the things that should be checked out during a car tune-up: 

  • Spark plugs
  • Fuel pump and filter
  • Fuel injectors
  • Engine timing and idle
  • PCV valve
  • Points and condenser.

The tune up for your vehicle will be uniquely based on its age, the number of miles driven, and its maintenance history. Your car tune up specialist may require an analysis of other engine components in addition to those listed above.

How do you know if it’s time for a car tune up? Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Dependable Car Care for more information about diagnostic tests and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves residents in the community of Ventura, CA, and the surrounding area.
