5 Signs That Indicate You Need a Tune-Up

You may know the saying, "why fix what's not broken," While this may be true in some scenarios, it does not apply to cars. There is value in getting your vehicle to the auto repair shop for work even when there are no serious issues. For instance, a tune-up can help prevent problems from arising down the line while ensuring your vehicle runs at peak performance. 

If you're driving a brand new car, it might not need a tune-up for quite some time. However, if your vehicle's mileage has surpassed 100,000 miles, tune-ups can break or make your vehicle. Here are 5 signs that it is time to get a tune-up.

Stalling Out

If your vehicle keeps stalling, it may need its spark plugs changed. A tune-up will let you know when parts like those decay. If your engine has been stalling, please let your mechanic know.

Lowered Fuel-Efficiency

Gas prices are high, and running on an inefficient vehicle can cost you tons of money. If you've noticed a sudden drop in your vehicle's fuel economy, bring your car by for a tune-up. We'll do what we can to save you money at the pump.

Car Shaking

Various problems can cause your car to shake or vibrate. This may be uncomfortable and even dangerous in some cases, so please take your vehicle in for a tune-up to correct the problem. 

Difficulty Starting Up

Nothing is more frustrating than having problems starting your car. A tune-up can be the proper fix and have your car starting seamlessly again.

High Mileage 

As mentioned before, a car that has surpassed 100K miles should get a tune-up. It will help you detect problems early on and preserve the longevity of the car.


If your vehicle needs a tune-up or other auto maintenance, please do not hesitate to bring your car to M&M Car Care Center Inc. We'll have your vehicle running at its best in no time.
