The term “car tune up” is something that most of us are familiar with. It involves the maintenance needed to ensure the smooth running of a car. In the past, this meant a mechanic (or enthusiastic DIYer) getting close up and personal beneath the hood, tinkering with the engine to clean up, service, or replace a variety of engine components.
While this remains true for older, classic, and vintage vehicles, today’s computer-controlled engines require something a little different. This is generally referred to as a service or major service.
Read on to discover exactly what this involves.
While many of us use the terms, car tune up and service, interchangeably, they are actually two separate things. The differences can be summed up as follows:
This means that older cars without computer systems still benefit from the manual work mentioned above—in other words, they have tune ups in between more major service needs. However, newer vehicles undergo either a minor or major service.
While, in essence, it doesn’t really matter what term you use, you’ll find that most car technicians will refer to car maintenance as a minor or major service, rather than a tune up.
Whatever you call car maintenance, it’s important that it’s carried out by a trusted source. Let’s not shy away from the fact that the industry is littered with stories of people being duped into paying for substandard work or even sacrificing their hard-earned dollars for work not carried out.
While this tends to be the exception, rather than the rule, there are still some careful steps you should take to ensure you choose a reliable car service provider.
Carrying out such due diligence means that you’ll be able to leave your vehicle and be happy that the work will be carried out to the expected standards.
At Autobahn, we only employ vehicle technicians who’re marque-trained. That means that, whatever the age of your vehicle, you can rest assured that the work will only be carried out by an expert who’s familiar with the make and model.
This holds true for your vintage classics right through to the newest electric and hybrid marvels, such as those produced by BMW, Porsche, Audi, VW, and Mercedes.
