Your engine is made up of hundreds of complex and important parts that work together in order for your car to run as it should. If at any time these parts are not functioning properly or are out of sync for any reason there is a very good chance you will damage your engine and never turn back. These components can also wear out over time resulting in a loss of performance and fuel efficiency. This is where the “tune-up” comes into play. Our Fort Walton Beach auto technicians are trained, certified, and knowledgable to maintain your engine with the utmost knowledge and care. We are committed to helping keep your vehicle running smoothly and as long as possible!
How do I know when it’s time for a tune-up?
The following signs can indicate it being time for you to have an auto tune-up when you are driving around good ol’ Fort Walton Beach and the surrounding Emerald Coast area:
- Decrease in gas mileage
- Loss in power
- Engine is running “rough” or stalling when vehicle is stopped
- “Knocking” sound can be heard when accelerating or running-on after vehicle is turned off
- “Check Engine” or “Service Engine” light on after first start
Never Cheat on Auto Maintenance
Never cheat on maintenance. Maintenance cheaters rationalize and justify poor maintenance decisions with highly imaginative theories, but they ultimately only cheat themselves. You can’t fool metal. Metal doesn’t have feelings. It’s impossible for metal parts to disregard forgotten or cheap penny-pinching, dollar-foolish, inadequate maintenance! Improper maintenance means prematurely worn parts and high repair bills. Proper maintenance provides reliability, longevity and, peace of mind. Give us a call today to set up an appointment!
