Does this mean that tune-ups are required less often than with older vehicles? What exactly IS a tune up? The answer to all these questions is, “It depends”.
The most accurate answer depends on the condition of your vehicle and what is actually needed. That answer will be determined by an experienced 3A Automotive technician.
Our technicians at 3A know how vehicles should run and have access to all the manufacturers recommendations. They also have access to all of the Technical Service Bulletins (TSB’s). TSB’s are all the common problems and their solutions that have been discovered since the time your vehicle was manufactured. All of these come into consideration as to when you need a tune-up.
The various parts in your engine are designed to work in precise harmony and rhythm with one another, much like the singers in a church choir, or the muscles of a dancer. If someone – or something – is “off key” or “out of balance”, the performance will be diminished. The audience may not notice, but the singers and the dancer will know.
For the average person, something has to go noticeably wrong in order to know there is a problem. For an experienced technician, it’s their job to know what to look for, what to feel and how the vehicle should perform.
3A Automotive will provide you with any recommended tune up services so you can choose what plan of action works best for you – before something goes wrong. We will work with you on the best plan – for you – so your vehicle will work its best.
