What Is A Tune Up?

By Andy Y - November 25th 2008

I believe the biggest point of confusion that motorists who own modern vehicles encounter besides the Check Engine Light is whether or not they need a "tune up".  A quick search of any automotive repair help forum or catch-all answer solution like Yahoo Answers will reveal any number of owners asking whether their car needs to be tuned up, what happens during a tune up, and how much it should cost.

Check out our write-up on tune ups, which includes everything you need to know about tune ups--even the history behind what it used to mean to give a car a tune up.

Scheduled maintenance has taken the place of the tune up in modern vehicles, and your complete maintenance schedule is published in your owner's manual.
