When we look at our engine, we see it as the heart of our vehicle. It’s responsible for making our vehicle go and without it, we couldn’t drive. In order for it to perform at the level we expect it to, it needs to go through a consistent maintenance schedule. Though this schedule may vary based on your driving habits and where you’re driving, your car’s engine still needs a tune-up in order to combat the normal wear-and-tear it experiences over time.

Outside of this valuable resource, there are actually other signs that it may be time for your next checkup. If you’re unsure of what those signs are, follow along as the Auto Care Experts explain three signs that it may be time for another tune-up!
This will be an obvious sign, but it’s best to have our technicians determine what’s exactly going on with your vehicle as the light provides no context to what’s wrong. Some causes for the check engine light to go off includes a faulty oxygen sensor or a bad Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF).
A clogged air filter can reduce the acceleration and fuel economy of your vehicle. What’s difficult about this is it happens over time. Most drivers won’t be able to notice the deceleration until it gets to a point where your vehicle is accelerating slower than a snail.
Along with reducing your vehicle’s fuel economy, bad spark plugs can also give you a hard time starting your vehicle. This is due to the spark plugs igniting at the wrong time and misfiring the engine. If you notice this, please make sure to bring your car to our shop as there may be additional problems.
