“Properly maintaining your vehicle will not only ensure its safety and dependability, but may also increase fuel efficiency. According to the Car Care Council, performing simple and inexpensive maintenance may save as much as $1,200 a year in gasoline cost.

Vehicle “tune-up” used to be associated with the routine replacement of key ignition system parts like spark plugs and ignition points, along with basic engine adjustments. Today, spark plugs can last up to 100,000 miles, there are no points to replace, carburetors to rebuild and you can’t adjust the engine’s timing.
