Does Your Vehicle Need a Tune-Up? Quirk Chevrolet of Portland Can Help

Chevrolet Certified Service | Quirk Chevrolet of Portland | Portland, ME

If you have a well-loved vehicle with over 100,000 miles on the odometer, it may need a multi-point inspection and tune-up to keep it running strong for years to come. Quirk Chevrolet of Portland is here to help you. In addition to performing regular maintenance tasks, our certified Chevrolet service center is your also your destination for getting a tune-up in Portland, Maine.

What is a tune-up, and why is it important?

After multiple years and many miles of usage, important vehicle components like spark plugs, ignition coils, and engine belts may need to be replaced in your vehicle. Regular tune-ups serve two key purposes: They help ensure that you get the maximum life out of your car, and they can prevent serious issues. Tune-ups keep the powertrain system running at full strength, protect against breakdowns, and can ultimately help save you money in the long run.

A conventional tune-up involves inspecting the belts, hoses, fuel filter, transmission fluid, oxygen sensor, spark plugs, and ignition system components. This inspection is carried out by our certified technicians at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland, which means it’s performed by someone familiar with your vehicle’s needs and uniquely qualified to diagnose issues.

When a tune-up discovers a potential issue with one of these components, your service professional can quickly correct the issue. Were these problems to go unchecked, they could lead to larger issues with your Chevrolet — and costly repair bills.

When should I get a tune-up for my Chevrolet?

Every vehicle’s service needs vary based on factors like age, mileage, model, and more. Depending on these factors, your Chevrolet may require a tune-up around 100,000 miles. This may also be contingent on how well you keep up with common maintenance every 5,000-10,000 miles, including oil changes, tire rotations, and Multi-Point Vehicle Inspections. The more diligent you are about caring for your vehicle, the easier it is for the service team at Quirk Chevrolet of Portland to fix a small issue before it becomes a big problem.

The most accurate information on when your vehicle needs critical services will be listed in the owner’s manual. This handy resource includes tables showing how often your Chevrolet car, truck, or SUV requires services like engine air filter replacement, tire rotations, and spark plug replacement. By following this guidance, you can ensure that your Chevy keeps rolling for years and miles to come.

Signs that my car needs a tune-up

You don’t want to discover that your car needs a tune-up because of sudden performance issues or a check-engine light appearing. That’s why you always need to pay attention for rough starts, stalling, inconsistent performance, and unusual sounds and smells — which all indicate possible issues. Staying up-to-date on maintenance and following the recommended service schedule can help ensure you don’t encounter these major problems.
