Little known facts about "tune-ups"... Believe it or not, the term “tune-up” is outdated. But that doesn’t mean that servicing your engine is. While the actual mechanics of a tune-up have changed, the goal remains the same…perfecting engine performance. Think of a tune-up as a routine check-up for your vehicle. You wouldn’t go years without seeing your doctor, so why would you treat your car–something that keeps you and your family safe–any differently! The actual tune-up process varies by service provider, but most technicians would agree it involves fine-tuning anything that helps restore the engine to like-new performance.
