Auto Tune Up Tips

Every car should get a major service after roughly 30,000 miles of travel. This maintenance is very important to prevent major problems with the car in the long run. In a major service, all the components that are prone to wear and tear as a result of driving are replaced and this gives your car a new lease of life. Apart from major service, you should also undertake smaller tune-ups regularly. If you skip a routine tune-up, you put the car’s health in jeopardy as it will be running under less-than-ideal conditions until the next service. Missing tune-ups increases depreciation and has a detrimental effect on gas mileage.
