An Automotive Tune-Up is a go-to service for maintaining the performance of your vehicle. A standard tune up includes replacing your spark plugs and ignition cables. You may need to take it further and replace your distributor cap and rotor.

Over time your spark plugs wear down from high heat and pressure. Worn out spark plugs can lead to your engine misfiring as the fuel and air mixture fail to ignite properly. In the desert heat of Albuquerque, ignition cables break down too. So, it is always a best practice to replace ignition cables at the same time you are replacing spark plugs. If your distributor cap shows signs of wear, we will recommend replacing that as well.
Tune-ups are necessary part of your automobile repair shop services. While you don’t need to change your spark plugs as often as you change your oil, proper engine operation requires a quality ignition from your electrical system. Corroded plugs, wires and distributors, hinder proper fuel ignition. In the long run this can lead to engine damage and costly repairs.
The next time you get your vehicle serviced, let us check your spark plugs and the condition of your wire harness. A little maintenance goes a long way to keep you from experiencing costly engine repairs.
