When to Perform Your Car’s Tune Up

In today’s world, cars are all computer controlled. Computers actually control everything in your vehicle from valve and ignition timing and fuel consumption to all those infamous dashboard lights. However, controlling and monitoring the spark plugs and wires in your vehicle as well as air and fuel filters and PCV valves are all parts that must be manually examined and replaced by qualified technicians. These very components are part of a typical automobile tune up. Here at Auto Clinic of Franklin, our team of highly trained automotive techs takes pride in providing the highest quality parts and services to all our valued Franklin clients and those in the adjacent towns as well.

Knowing When a Tune Up Is Needed

The team here at Auto Clinic of Franklin wants to take this time to provide insight to all our clients on when it is necessary to perform a vehicle tune up. Most vehicles today require this service to be performed based primarily upon the vehicle’s mileage. There are designated manufacturer mileage-based timelines that help vehicle owners to know when specific parts or components need to be replaced and when specific preventative maintenance services should be performed. These preventative services help to minimize or avoid the failure of car parts and causing vehicle owners to be faced with unsuspecting automobile problems. Here we share some of those preventative services that should be performed in your efforts to ensure the continued functionality and operation of your vehicle. Services include:

  • Oil and filter replacements at 3000-5000 miles. At your typical oil change, technicians will also inspect your air filter, top off all your fluids and check that tire pressures are all accurate.
  • Wiper blade inspection and replacement at 7000 miles.
  • Fuel filter and cabin air filter replacements at approximately 15,000 miles.
  • Automatic transmission fluid and transmission filter changes at 30,000 miles. At the 30,000-mile marker you also want to perform service to the fuel injection and also have the cooling system in your vehicle flushed.
  • Differential fluids, manual transmission fluids, as well as fluids for power steering, transfer case, and brakes should all be replaced at the 50,000-mile marker.
  • Finally, it is recommended that the PCV valve along with spark plugs and wires, as well as the timing belt are all replaced at 60,000 miles.
