Signs Your Car Needs A Tune-Up Part 2

In our last blog, we discussed tips to determine if your car needs to be taken to the auto mechanic.

Today, we will continue with our list of things you need to be on the look-out for to better understand when your car is in need of a tune-up.

  • If you aren’t already keeping track of how many miles you get per tank of gas, you should start now. The amount of miles you get on any given tank of gas is important. A sudden change in your gas mileage could indicate that your car needs to be serviced, especially if the change in gas mileage is drastic.
  • If your car has lost its get up and go, you need to get up and go to the auto mechanic. It’s not only important that your car has the ability to accelerate for the fun of it. Acceleration is important for merging and getting up steep inclines. If you car’s acceleration has declined in power, have it checked out.
  • If your car suffers from chronic vibration, it can not only be annoying, but it can also mean that there is something wrong with your car. Don’t wait to have your car looked at if it is vibrating for no apparent reason. This could be caused by problems with your tires or a universal joint that is failing.
