The intervals for a car tune up, aka (also known as) maintenance service, varies from one vehicle to another depending on the manufacturer's requirements. The best way to know the recommended car tune up or service intervals for your specific vehicle is to read your owner's manual. Today's newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems can go from 25,000 miles to as many as 100,000 miles without needing a major tune-up. Older cars with non-electronic ignitions generally require a tune up every 10,000 to 12,000 miles or every year, whichever comes first.

However, if you want to keep your car operating at its optimum efficiency, have the various components inspected periodically, even if it's not time for a service. It's especially important if you do a lot of stop-and-go driving, pull heavy loads (like a camper or boat), or make a lot of short trips.

If it is time for a tune up, you may notice one or more of the following symptoms in your vehicle's electronic ignition system:

  • Hard starting -- There may be problems in the starting system, such as a weak battery, a failing fuel pump, or a faulty component in the ignition system.
  • Rough idle – Rough idling is a indication of some kind of misfire, such as hardware failures inside the engine. Excess air going into the engine can also cause a rough idle, but it will usually smooth out with an increase in rpm.
  • Frequent stalling -- The spark plugs may be fouled or worn, the gap between the spark plug electrodes may need adjusting, or an electronic sensing device may need to be adjusted.

If your car stalls at crucial intersections, or does not have the required passing power to make a safe overtake of a slower vehicle, it is more than likely time for an adjustment, or a car tune up. Schedule a full electronic diagnosis with a trustworthy auto mechanic.

Make an investment in a timely car tune up you will reap the dividends with improved fuel economy, longer engine life, and a cleaner environment
