Duncan Tune-Up Service Frequently Asked Questions

What is a tune up?
There’s no absolute definition of what exactly a tune-up should include, but most would agree that it involves replacing the spark plugs and performing other adjustments to maintain or restore like-new engine performance. The problem is there’s not much that can adjusted under the hood on many late model vehicles.
When should you get a tune up on your car?
Most older vehicles with non-electronic ignitions should be tuned every 15,000 to 20,000 kms or every year, whichever comes first. Newer cars with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are scheduled to go from 40,000 kms to as many as 150,000 kms without needing a major tune-up.
What does a tune up for your car consist of?
The common parts that are replaced when tuning up a vehicle such as spark plugs, plug wires, air filter and fuel filter. It’s also a great time to check other components under the hood such as belts, hoses and fluids.
How often do you need to change spark plugs?
Vehicle manufacturers make much of the fact that their products come equipped with extended-life spark plugs that can maintain a precise gap for 150,000 kms. However, before you wait that long to replace them, you should bear in mind that spark plugs that hit the 130,000-km marker are four-fifths worn.
