Basic Tips on Car Tuning

When your car gets to travel at least 30,000 miles, it’s time for you to give it a tune-up. After all, it’s one of the best ways to get your auto in tip-top shape. Usually, tuning may require you to assess and perhaps replace all of those car components that may be undergoing their advance wear and tear.

There are a number of benefits you get when a car is properly maintained, one of which is that it’s a very cost-effective practice. For one, you can basically do tuning on your own so you don’t have to pay any labor. Second, you can save on gas because of more excellent mileage. Third, you don’t have to deal with any more serious problems that may let you pay more dearly.

But how do you exactly tune up your car? Here are some great tips:

Valves. You need to check on valves regularly and, if needed, make necessary adjustments. You have to replace the cover gasket too, more so if you can see that oil is already above your engine.

Belts. Belts of your car should never be worn out. If they start to exhibit any signs of tension or fraying, you need to replace them immediately.

Rotor and Distributor Cap. Normally, their basic component is plastic, which can easily be damaged with time. Moreover, they are more inclined to obtain cracks, which allows moisture to settle in your engine. When this happens, corrosion is likely to happen among metals. As a car owner, you need to check these parts regularly and have them replaced should any of these signs start to happen. Better yet, ask for a much better recommendation from an expert auto technician.

Sparkplugs. If both sparkplugs and their wires are damaged, the tendency is you will not be able to use your fuel efficiently and can even lessen your ability to drive the car properly. Worse, there will be more occurrences of towing as they are a major cause of car breakdowns. So have them checked most of the time too and replace them as soon as possible, along with the rotor and distributor cap.  

Fuel filter. Is it difficult for you to start you car? Then there must be a problem with your fuel filter. If they aren’t cleaned regularly, it restricts the engine from running and, thus, prevents your car from gaining power.

Not all are equipped with technical know-how when it comes to cars, yet it pays to even just grasp the basic. With proper car tuning, it’s like riding a brand-new auto every day.
