Tune Up Service: Ignition System and Spark Plugs

Though many spark plugs are designed to last 100,000 miles, they can still get dirty or fail prematurely. Ignition wires
lose insulating ability over time, and the connection to the plug or ignition coil can degrade as well. Having your service
technician regularly inspect your ignition system can help you avoid conditions that may result in poor performance or
reduced fuel economy.

Ensuring that your vehicle receives a tune up according to manufacturer recommendations will help maintain the optimal
performance of your vehicle and extend its life.

Our ASE Certified automobile tune up service technicians are ready to put their experience to work for you, ensuring your
vehicle is operating at an optimal level of performance.

Performing regular maintenance, including scheduled automobile tune-up service helps ensure a long life for your vehicle. Our experienced technicians will inspect your car and, if necessary: 

  • Replace spark plugs, wires, and boots
  • Replace distributor cap
  • Replace rotor
  • Replace fuel filter
  • Replace PCV valve
  • Replace oxygen sensor
  • Analyze exhaust emissions
  • Adjust ignition timing and idle speed control
  • Perform a comprehensive maintenance inspection

(Please note that some parts are extra.)

If neglected, the destructive effects of not administering recommended or necessary tune-up services can dramatically
decreased performance in your car, and may even lead to other more costly automobile / vehicle repair needs.

When your vehicle is properly tuned, the ignition system, fuel system, emission system and computer system all work together in perfect harmony. This results in peak combustion chamber efficiency, improving performance, saving you money at the gas pump and making sure your car is emitting a minimal amount of pollutants.

Ignition System
The ignition system is responsible for producing and transferring the spark energy to the combustion chamber at the correct time.

Spark Plugs
Spark plugs are installed in the cylinder head and deliver spark current to the combustion chamber.

  Symptoms of malfunctioning sparkplugs include:
  • Hard starting
  • Lack of power
  • Misfiring or backfiring
  • High emissions
  • Reduced fuel economy

Ignition Coils

Produce high voltage spark energy sufficient to properly ignite the air/fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber. The On-Board computer or ignition module typically controls ignition coils.

  Symptoms of malfunctioning ignition coils include:

  • No start
  • Hard starting
  • Misfire under a load
  • High emissions

Distributer Cap and Rotor

The distributor cap is the connection point for all sparkplug wires. Distributor type ignitions systems (DI) also have a distributor rotor. The rotor spins inside the cap distributing the spark current to each sparkplug wire. Electronic Ignition (EI) systems do not have distributors, but instead have multiple ignition coils.

Symptoms of a malfunctioning distributor:

  • Hard or no-start conditions
  • Misfiring or backfiring
  • Poor acceleration
  • Stalling

Ignition Wires

Provides a conductive path for the spark current from the distributor cap or coil to the spark plugs. Contain the spark energy.

  Symptoms of malfunctioning ignition wires include:

  • Hard starting
  • Misfiring or backfiring
  • Misfire under a load
  • High emissions

  Benefits of a Properly Maintained Ignition System
  • Quick starting
  • Increased performance
  • Increased fuel economy
  • Lower emissions
  • Cure specific driveability concern (requires diagnosis, see manager for details)
  • Conserves spark energy for the combustion chamber
  • Regulates spark energy

  What does a Precision Tune Auto Care Tune Up include?
  • Tune-up verification
  • Replacement of spark plugs
  • Analysis of emission levels
  • Timing/idle speed adjustment (if adjustable)
  • Complete maintenance inspection

All of the parts we install are guaranteed to meet or exceed manufacturer standards, and if you wish, we’ll return all of your old parts to you.

This service is advised based on your manufacturer’s recommendations, or as needed as determined by our inspection and based on industry standards.
