Regular engine tune-ups bring power and efficiency back to your car. At Getit Automotive, we visually inspect all of your engine components and install new parts (including spark plugs and fuel filters) as needed.
After a Getit Automotive car tune-up, you'll discover your engine starts easier, runs smoother and is more efficient. A regular engine tune-up will lower emissions, improve fuel economy and restore lost power.
When you get car tune-ups based on your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations, you're investing in the long-term health of your car, saving you time and money.
When you bring your vehicle into Getit Automotive for a tune-up, you are essentially asking our skilled technicians to inspect your engine, analyze vehicle performance, and make adjustments as needed. The engine tune-up checklist will include both preventative and restorative engine assessment, and final maintenance recommendations that will vary from vehicle to vehicle based on age, mileage and unique manufacturer recommendations.
To give you a better idea of what happens under the hood when you drop your car off, we’ve compiled a basic engine tune-up checklist:
*Check the vehicles engine management system for fault codes and monitor live data thru the diagnostic tool to determine the engine management system health and operation.
*Check visual appearance of spark plugs: are they worn? What colour are the insulator firing noses? An engine in good condition should have spark plugs with light tan or grey insulator firing noses. Any other colour could be the sign of an engine problem.
*Test the performance of spark plugs. What colour is the spark? Is the spark properly igniting the fuel?
*Check spark plug wires and coil packs to make sure they are not hard or cracked.
*Check the fuel filter to make sure it isn’t clogged or dirty.
*Check the engine’s fuel pump for proper function.
*Inspect the engine’s fuel injectors to make sure dirt or other deposits are not restricting the amount of fuel that can be delivered to the engine.
*Make sure fuel injector build up isn’t affecting how the spark plugs fire.
*Adjust the engine timing and idle if necessary and allowable on your vehicle.
*Check that the PCV valve isn’t clogged or leaking.
