Car tune up

car tune up is one of the most important services that we provide at Spradlin. Parts only last for so long, and with wear and tear come decreased engine and overall performance. To keep everything running smoothly and your car well-maintained, it is important to ensure that the parts under the hood are reliable and replaced as they age. Most cars have manufacturer recommended replacement dates. As this time approaches, a car tune up is suggested to keep the vehicle in smooth working order. It is better to have a thorough car tune up than to wait long past the replacement date and experience worsening issues or a breakdown.

Timing Belt Replacement

Another important part of your engine is the timing belt. The timing belt controls your engine’s valves and should be synchronized with the valve and piston movements. Without proper timing belt replacement practices, the engine could suffer a complete breakdown or fail. Just like the other parts, timing belt replacement is suggested at set intervals by the manufacturer, but usually range between 100,000 and 150,000 miles.
