Sacramento Car Tune-Up Service
Vehicle maintenance and repair the way it should be. No hassle. No worries.
At Smog Mart, we believe the best way to keep your car running safely, and smoothly, is with regularly scheduled tune-ups. As cars age, it is important to maintain and inspect your engine’s parts for regular wear and tear. Utilizing routine maintenance, we can help prevent disasters by repairing issues before they happen.
What Exactly Is a Tune-Up?
No matter the age, make, or model of your car, our expert mechanics and technicians can help ensure your car stays on the road longer. As a rule of thumb, vehicle tune-ups should be performed about once a year. Depending on the age of your vehicle, tune-ups and maintenance may vary.
If your vehicle is a classic, we can help by checking the distributor, cap, rotor, ignition contact points, condensers, carburetors, spark plugs, belts, and more. If your car is a bit newer, our tune-up services include inspection of spark plugs, wires, belts, oil and oil filters, air filters, and fuel filters. Additionally, our tune-ups may include replacement of oxygen sensors, and PCV valves, and other parts as needed by your vehicle.
Why Are Tune-Ups Important?
As our vehicles age, break-downs become more likely due to part failures. By performing regular tune-ups to your car, truck, and SUV, preventative maintenance can be performed to help mitigate larger issues — and the expensive costs associated with them.
For example, your vehicle’s air filter should typically be replaced at least once per year. As you drive, these filters can become clogged with dirt and other debris causing air flow to become restricted to your engine, making it harder for it to perform properly. If this problem is not addressed routinely, the engine’s air-fuel mixture will begin to run rich, meaning there is too much fuel and not enough air to properly operate. Over time, engines that run rich often have worse gas mileage, slow acceleration, and are prone to more severe issues down the road.
