Below are some of the tasks performed during a tune up.

Belt and Hose Replacement: Your vehicle requires several belts and hoses to run all of it’s components along with your engine. The hoses move fluids throughout the engine, and the belts support parts such as the alternator and water pump. Over time daily wear and tear can cause these belts and hoses to crack or break.

Over time these components wear down, which can impact your vehicle’s performance. A worn ignition coils could cause engine misfires.

Fluid Replacement: You vehicle requires a variety of liquids to run and perform it’s many functions such as engine oil, brake fluid, coolant and transmission fluid. These all need to be kept clean if parts such as your transmission and engine are to function properly. During your tune up, an Orozco’s Auto Service technician will examine all these fluids and drain and replace them if they show any signs of contamination or loss of viscosity.

Filter Replacement: Your vehicle relies on several filtration systems to filter the air that travels through the engine and the cabin, and they prevent contaminants from polluting your car’s fuel and oil. Each system plays a very important role in maintaining the way your vehicle performs. If your car’s oil filter isn’t replaced at regular intervals, it could cause dirty oil to clog your engine. an Orozco’s Auto Service technician will take a look at your vehicle’s filters and make all the necessary replacements.

Depending on the needs of your vehicle other tasks may also need to be completed.
