Many engines need a “tune-up” at about 75,000 miles. A cleaning and tune-up of your fuel injection system and engine can revitalize your vehicle for many more miles of trouble free service. A tune-up can restore the power, performance, and fuel economy of your vehicle. Additionally, it can significantly reduce harmful emissions and ensure reliable starts.

So when are vehicle tune-ups required, and what happens during this service? Today’s fuel injection systems computer-assisted engines can benefit from a tune-up anywhere between 60,000 and 100,000 miles. Your owner’s manual will provide additional guidance.
