October 15th, 2019 by

Even if you diligently take in your Toyota to our service center for oil changes, tire rotations, and other preventative maintenance, there’s one thing that could be missing from your routine: tune-ups. While you don’t need one as often as other types of service, it’s best to give your vehicle a tune-up every 30,000 miles or so, especially if you have an older vehicles. A tune-up is also beneficial if any of these issues are happening in your vehicle.

  • Check engine light is on: Sometimes your check engine light comes on and you can pinpoint exactly what the problem is, but if can’t figure out why it’s on, it’s best to get your car looked at. Even if it still seems to run fine, there could be an underlying issue that will probably get worse if left undiagnosed.
  • Shuddering or jolting: If your engine shutters or jolts when you’re sitting at a red light, there could be a serious issue under your hood, including bad spark plugs or clogged air filters.
  • Acceleration trouble: If your car can’t reach the speeds it used to, even when you press on the gas pedal, it may require a tune-up. Often, this issue is related to old air filters or clogged fuel injectors.
  • Poor fuel economy: Another tune-up warning sign is when your car’s fuel economy keeps dipping. If you find yourself having to stop at gas stations more often than ever, you could be experiencing problems with your oxygen sensors, spark plugs, and or fuel filter.
