Engine Tune-up Thousand Oaks You Can Depend On:Engine Tune-up Thousand Oaks for your car is a big deal. In the good old days, It was a manual process because all of the parts were simply mechanical. There were a lot more parts that needed attention. And you had to time the engine by hand and actually determine what the proper oxygen mix was. These days, a lot of that is controlled by the computer in your car and as long as that is working properly, a lot of the manual processes no longer have to be performed.

So What Exactly is Involved in An Engine Tune-up?
First, there is a visual inspection of what goes on under your hood. We look at the spark plugs. Simply the color can tell us a lot. We look at the fuel filter to see if it’s clean as well as the fuel injectors to see if they are excessively dirty.
Then we get down to brass tacks. We pull the spark plugs and check their condition. We check the performance of the spark plugs to see if they are operating properly and aren’t too worn and that they spark properly. Then we check the spark plug wires to be sure that aren’t cracked. If there are problems with the spark plugs all of the cylinders won’t fire and that affects the engine performance,
Then we check the fuel filter and if it’s clogged or dirty we replace it. A clogged fuel filter can cause performance problems. We check the air filter and replace it if needed. We also check the fuel pump ensure that it’s functioning properly. If your fuel pump isn’t working correctly, you will have problems getting gas to the engine.
We check your fuel injectors. Clogged fuel injectors can also cause you performance problems and will prevent fuel from reaching the engine. We clean them if they are dirty and replace them if they are not functioning properly.
Once we check, clean and change any components that are necessary, we check and adjust the timing if it’s necessary. The timing controls the firing of the cylinders. If they aren’t timed correctly, again, your performance is affected and your car will run rough.
Last we check the PCV valve to ensure it isn’t clogged and then we check your car’s points and condenser.
