Tune-Ups Chico, CA

The phrase “tune-up” is thrown around pretty loosely. People have a general idea of what it means to give your vehicle a “tune-up”, an image comes to a mind of someone bent over a car, with the hood popped open, holding a wrench, and appearing to fiddle with some part, but most people don’t actually know what a tune-up entails. This idea of a tune up is definitely heading in the right direction, as it usually refers to work done beneath the hood, as opposed to other areas of the car, like the tires or suspension.

What Is A Tune-Up Exactly?

As previously mentioned, tune-ups take place beneath the hood of car and generally involve replacing, repairing, or cleaning major items like the rotors, caps, wires, fuel injection systems, and spark plugs. It can also involve inspections of any filters, pumps, and valves. What a tune-up actually entails will depend on the make and model of your vehicle and the manufacturer recommendations.
