In the United States, there were nearly 6.3 million car sales for 2017 which is some of the lowest numbers of sales since the late 2000’s recession. Even though 2017 was not the best year for car sales, there are still over 250 million cars within the United States. Although cars are the main form of transportation in the United States, they can also be a deadly weapon if not taken care of properly. Each year there are approximately 1.3 million deaths as a result of car crashes, which can be a result of not taking enough care of your car’s parts. In order to ensure that your car is being properly taken care of, it is important to have your car get a tune-up every 30,000 miles.
What Goes into a Car Tune Up?
The purpose of a car tune up is to ensure that the car’s engine is working as it should. Many take their car in for a tune-up when they are experiencing some kind of driveability problem. Since there are so many different makes and models of cars, the tune-up is dependent on the engine that is in the car. However, most tune ups follow the same steps in what must be checked or changed. We will know to go into detail about what our car mechanics in Coral Springs check when performing a car tune-up.
The first thing that is done when taking your car in for a tune-up is a visual inspection of the engine’s fuel system and spark plugs. The engine fuel system is checked to make sure that fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel injectors are not clogged with sediment, which can lead to damage to the car. The sediment comes from filling your car up with gas when the gas tank is transferring fuel into storage tanks at the gas station. As the station’s underground tanks are being filled, the turbulence can stir up sediment which increases the chance of it entering your car. The spark plugs are also inspected to determine the age and wear of the parts. After the age and wear have been determined, the spark plug performance is tested to make sure they are functioning properly. The spark plugs are crucial to the engine because it ignites the fuel which starts the engine. These are the first two elements inspected because it controls whether or not your car will start and continue to run smoothly.
After the engine and spark plugs have been inspected, our staff then checks the PCV valve. The PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve is located on or near the intake manifold and has a huge impact on the engine. If not properly maintained it can cause oil leaks and sludge buildup in the engine. Once the PCV valve is inspected our staff determines if it needs to be replaced or repaired. Next, the vehicle’s engine air filter and cabin air filter are checked for harmful dirt and debris. The engine air filter prevents the dirt and debris from entering the engine when the cabin air filter prevents the dust and debris from entering your car. During a car tune-up and repair in Coral Springs, our staff will either clean or replace these filter to ensure that clean air is blowing throughout your car at all times. The last thing checked when conducting a car tune up is the oil and coolant levels. The oil is changed to make sure that your engine is running to optimal performance without having sludge buildups. Car coolant is made up of either ethylene glycol or propylene glycol and keeps the radiator from freezing or overheating. Both the oil and coolant are replaced to ensure that all the liquid running through your car is clean.
