Engine Tune Up


The engine is probably the most important part of your car. Make sure you treat it right, so it can continue treating you right. If you’ve noticed your vehicle has been running or idling roughly, stalling fairly often or is just plain harder to start, it’s time for a tune up. Call us now at (225) 923-2500 for a tune up in Baton Rouge. We serve drivers in City of Central, Greenwell Springs, LA, and Denham Springs, LA, and the surrounding areas, too.

Why do I need an engine tune up?

Regular tune-ups ensure your vehicle is running efficiently.

How often do I need to get an engine tune up?

Check with your owner’s manual for the suggested time to have your engine tuned up. If you notice any signs that your engine is not working properly, it is important to stop in for an engine tune up.

In the past, engine tune-ups were much more time consuming because they required a motorist to check a variety of parts.

What is an engine tune up?

Engine tune-ups used to include checking the distributor, cap, rotor, ignition contact points, condensers, carburetors, and more.

Today, these items are generally no longer included in engine tune-ups. This is because a vehicle’s electronic control unit controls the engine timing.

While not as many parts need to be checked today, engine tune-ups still include the inspection of a variety of parts. These parts include spark plugs and wires, oil and oil filters, and fuel filters.

Why should I have an engine tune up performed at Fife Tire & Car Care, LLC?

Regular tune-ups will make sure your engine is running at its best. Engine tune-ups can help prevent breakdowns and extend the life of an automobile. A well-tuned engine will help keep a vehicle high performing. This is why routine maintenance is so important.

What does an engine tune-up involve?

During a tune-up, our service staff will check the following:

  • Spark plugs. They are responsible for igniting the gasoline and air mixture that fuels your engine.
  • Spark plug wires. These transfer voltage created by your spark plug. Old wires can burn out and cause a misfire.
  • Fuel filters. They help stop debris from reaching your engine. A clogged fuel filter will lead to poor acceleration and poor engine performance.
  • Air filter. This prevents debris from entering the combustion engine. Poor airflow makes your engine work harder and causes your vehicle to lose horsepower.

During our tune-up, we can make sure each of these parts are performing correctly.

Please adhere to your owner’s manual for recommended service intervals, and contact us when your engine is ready for a tune-up in Baton Rouge.
