Tune-up Benefits | Efficient Roadside Assistance

At Your Autopal, we often get asked what’s included in a standard tune-up. The answer will vary from garage to garage, but generally, this type of preventative; proactive maintenance targets problem areas and resolves small issues so they don’t increase in size.

Most tune-ups include a thorough engine check, to make sure there are no leaks; that it sounds and feels right when the vehicle run. For a closer look at some of the other ways, a tune-up can improve your vehicle, check out our list of tune-up benefits.

4 Tune-Up Benefits

Better Mileage

A tune-up can fix all the little things going on in your vehicle that you may not have noticed are causing you to shell out more on gas. For example, if your brakes stick, it could be causing your vehicle to guzzle more than usual.

During the tune-up, your brakes will be inspected and brake pads might be replaced. Poor fuel mileage could also mean that your tires aren’t properly aligned; which causes them to rotate at an odd angle, and increase friction on axles and against the road.

A tire rotation and alignment can easily fix this issue. And help reduce the amount of gas your car uses to drive from home to work and back.

Fix a Rough Ride

Let’s face it, as your vehicle ages, it just doesn’t run as smoothly as it used to. Maybe you’ve noticed it shaking a little bit, or having a bit of difficulty getting started in the morning, especially when it’s cold.

A power check and energy check by your mechanic can diagnose both these problems, and determine what’s causing the rattling and why your vehicle isn’t holding power the way that it should be.

From the starter to the exhaust, there are hundreds of internal components that could be the cause. A certified mechanic can find the problem and fix it so that you don’t have to ride uncomfortably from point A to point B.

Glowing Lights on the Dash

Each of the warning lights on your car is designed to tell you something, unfortunately not every driver is bilingual in car diagnostics. For this reason, our professional team of mechanics will work to uncover what the warning lights mean; why they’re on, and how to fix them quickly and effectively.

A Thorough Check-Up

Think of a tune-up for your car the way you would a medical check-up for your body. It thoroughly inspects working components, finds problems, and allows them to be healed. Just as your physician might prescribe medicine to fix an ailment; your mechanic will suggest having something serviced to improve handling, decrease the chance of a breakdown, and give you an overall better ride.

During a tune-up, your mechanic will perform a code scan to check for ignition troubles or exhaust leaks. He or she will also take this time to check everything from valves, rings, and gaskets to battery voltage and engine leaks.

Your mechanic may not always find an issue during a tune-up; which is great news to those who love their vehicles. But in most cases, there will be one or two things to fix before you’ll want to drive again.

The important thing to remember following a tune-up is that your mechanic is giving you the opportunity to fix small ant hills before they turn into molehills. We’d much rather help you repair a small part now than need to perform a major overhaul later.

    It’s good to know that the mechanic can do a code scan to find out what the issues really are on the car. My cousin has an older car that needs some work done on it. He needs to look around for a local mechanic and towing service that can help him out.

    I appreciate your advice to get the car towed to a mechanic when it starts aging so that it can be fixed up and get back on the road. My brother is thinking about getting a new towing service on his phone. That way, he can call them if his older car starts to break down.

    I’m going to be heading out on a road trip, but I’m afraid of what will happen if my car breaks down. It makes sense that having towing services lined up would be a good idea. I’ll be sure to work with a professional to see if they can do that for me.

    Hello Good afternoon🤗
    We recently starting a towing business and came across this amazing article. Thank you for taking the time to write this out. I really loved the idea of leasing new and cycling every three to four years. This seems like a the perfect way to keep our fleet in peak condition for all of our jobs. You did an amazing job keeping this article interesting and not boring and also provided very good solutions for each point. Thanks again!
