Engine Tuning


At Cheers Automotive, we still remember when a tune up was a set of spark plugs, a cap, rotor, wires, and maybe adjusting the timing. Some of our customers’ cars still take that treatment every 30,000 miles or so, but most modern cars have much longer maintenance intervals that vary by model, year, and engine option. Even though there are fewer moving parts in a modern ignition system and less adjustability, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule (found in your owner’s manual) to keep your car running as designed. The old question “How much for a tune up?” is most often answered these days with a “Well, it depends….” because it really does. Some cars need a set of $4.00/ea spark plugs every 30,000 miles, while others require a set of $23.00/ea spark plugs every 100,000 miles.
