4 Signs Your Car Needs a Tune-Up

20 February 2015

Whatever make or model you drive, your vehicle will still need a tune-up at one point. “When” you need it, however, is subject to discussion. Older vehicles, for instance, would need it more often than newer models with fuel injection systems.

Common Signs

Nonetheless, you can be aware of when you might actually need it. When your car needs a tune-up, you would notice any (or a combination) of these signs:

• Hard Starting – When you find it difficult to start the car, take it as the first sign of car trouble. There are many possible causes for this, like a faulty electrical system. The starting sensor on fuel-injected models and choke mechanism on carburettor-run engines could also be the culprit. • Rough Manoeuvring – You would feel a difference in the way you handle your car if it needs a tune-up. When your auto starts to be hard to manoeuvre while accelerating and while idle, it’s probably time for a trip to the mechanic. • Occasional Stalling – It’s bad enough that your car stalls, but it gets worse if it breaks down quite frequently. This may indicate that you have worn spark plugs, but there are also other likely causes. • Odours and Sounds – Unusual sounds and smells are never a good thing when it comes to cars.

What You Can Do

The good news is that these signs don’t necessarily mean you have to dispose of your car. The first thing to do, of course, is to bring your car to a mechanic.
