To keep your vehicle in proper working order tune-ups are necessary, but only when you actually need one. So... When is that?

If you own a vehicle that is older and does not have an electric ignition then your vehicle will need a tune-up more often.  The rule of thumb for these older model cars is every 10,000 -12,000 miles or once per year, whichever comes first.

However, if you own a newer vehicle, they are equipped with electric ignition and a fuel injection system, which means fewer tune-ups are necessary. For most new cars, no major tune-up is needed for 25,000 to 100,000 miles, be sure to check your vehicle's handbook to see if it is time to schedule a tune-up for your vehicle!

Whether you drive a new or older model vehicle, stay on top of your mileage and post a reminder on your calendar so you won’t forget and put excessive miles on your car after it’s time for a tune-up.
