What a Tune-up Involves
There’s more to a tune-up than the switch of a button. A properly tuned engine provides power to the wheels, good fuel economy, and the lowest level of emissions.
The main tune-up components are:
- Air Filter
- PCV Valve
- Spark Plugs
- Fuel Filter
- Oxygen Sensor
- Distributor Cap
- Ignition Rotor
- Ignition coil
- Plug wires
Why Oil Changes Matter
The most important part of preventive maintenance is keeping up with your regular engine oil changes. This helps to ensure that your vehicle is running safely and reliably, and also reduces your car’s emissions. It does not take long for your engine oil to become contaminated with environmental elements, like dust, rust, and even metallic deposits. That is why industry experts and vehicle manufacturers all recommend regular engine oil and filter maintenance. The engine oil supplies lubrication and cooling to essential components of your vehicle. Engine oil and filters can also keep your engine clean and running smoothly. Without regular maintenance, parts within your engine can be damaged by contaminated oil or worn down if the oil level is low. Regular maintenance from a Milex expert helps Margate vehicle owners maintain their resale value.

What does A Tune Up Do for Your Car?
A tune-up and other regular maintenance help with more than just an oil change. Maintaining all fluids, replacing worn-out parts, and engine maintenance are all an important part of keeping your car in good condition. Tune-ups restore power, return your vehicle to original operating state, and involve a thorough inspection of your engine. The inspection will provide an idea on needed repairs/recommendations.
When Should I Service my Car for a Tune-up?
A proper tune-up can prolong the life of your engine, improve performance and gas mileage. We recommend a vehicle tune up every 30,000 or as required by the manufacturer, when you notice poor gas mileage, difficult starting conditions, or a rough running engine.
