What Is A Car, Truck, or SUV Tune-Up?
“The term “tune-up” usually denotes the routine servicing of the engine to meet the manufacturer’s specifications. Tune-ups are needed periodically according to the manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure the vehicle runs as expected. Modern automobile engines typically require a small number of tune-ups over the course of an approximate 250,000-kilometre (160,000 mi) or a 10-year, lifespan. This can be attributed to improvements in the production process in which imperfections and errors reduced by computer automation, and significant improvement in the quality of consumables such as the availability of synthetic engine oil.”*
