Many customers don’t know what questions to ask their Auto Repair Service technician. To help break down the complex interrelations of an automobile and to provide a better understanding of how a motor vehicle works, and why it’s important to keep it maintained, we are providing you with frequently updated articles. A motor vehicle service or tune-up is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has traveled a certain distance. The service intervals are specified by the vehicle’s manufacturer in a service schedule and some modern cars display the due date for the next service electronically on the instrument panel. A tune-up should not be confused with engine tuning, which is the modifying of an engine to perform better that the original specification, rather than using maintenance to keep the engine running as it should.
Did you know?... The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car when German inventor, Karl Benz, built his Benz Patent-Motorwagen. In the early 20th century, cars became widely available. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the US, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. ~Wikipedia
