What’s Included In My Tune-Up Service?

A tune-up should be part of every vehicle owner’s maintenance plan. A tune-up allows our technicians to check your vehicle for any small problems before they require for more costly repair. When you choose Tire Pirates for your tune-up service, you can feel confident that our licensed and experienced technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your vehicle and inform you of any important services that may be required. We are transparent about the condition of your vehicle and will only make the repairs you requested if necessary. Our tune-up service includes:

  • Spark Plug ReplacementSpark plugs ignite the gasoline within your engine, which allows it to run. Over the kilometers, the electrodes on your car or truck’s spark plugs begin to wear off. The result is your vehicle not running as smoothly or feeling sluggish. During your tune-up service, our team will inspect your engine’s spark plugs to ensure that your engine is running at maximum efficiency.
  • Fuel Filter ReplacementChecking and replacing your vehicle’s fuel filter is a critical step in our tune-up service. As cars get older, dirt, rust, and other particles can begin to accumulate in the gas tank. Your fuel filter prevents contaminants from entering your fuel line and engine. However, over time, your fuel filter becomes clogged, which can cause major issues with your vehicle. Our team will replace the fuel filter in your car to allow it to run better.
  • Air Filter ReplacementDoes your air filter need to be replaced? Your vehicle’s air filter is responsible for allowing oxygen into the combustion chamber, which helps your car to drive. When your air filter is clogged with dirt, the engine doesn’t get enough oxygen which can cause low performance. Our technicians will replace your air filter to ensure peak performance.

What are the Signs My Vehicle Needs a Tune-Up?

Most vehicle manufacturers suggest a vehicle tune-up every 50,000 to 80,000 kilometers depending on the vehicle’s age and total mileage. However, you know your car better than anyone else, so it is essential that if your car doesn’t feel like it’s running correctly that you schedule your service. Ignoring these signs could cause more costly issues with your vehicle down the road. If your car begins displaying any of these tell-tale signs, then we recommend bringing it into our auto shop for a tune-up immediately.

  • Stalling – If your vehicle is stalling, it may be a sign that your fuel filter is clogged, which may prevent an adequate amount of gasoline from travelling to your engine.
  • Slow to Accelerate – When you are attempting to accelerate, but your vehicle is not as responsive, it may be an issue with your spark plugs or air filter.
  • Misfiring – When your car engine is misfiring, you may feel a sudden movement in your vehicle, which is because your engine is not receiving the correct fuel-to-air ratio.
