Preventive maintenance and regular engine service recommended by the auto manufacturer are absolutely imperative for optimal engine performance and long lifespan. Doing basic maintenance doesn't mean you have to be a mechanic – things like checking oil or coolant level are something everyone can do. By doing these simple procedures yourself, you will prevent expensive engine damage and save some money in your wallet.

Engines are built to be tough and durable, bot not everlasting. Lack of basic maintenance and engine service (ignoring oil changes, driving low on oil or coolant, etc.) and subjecting the engine to extreme loads for extended periods all affect how long its components will last and can damage them sooner than you expect. Put through the rigors of heavy use without proper maintenance, the engine can sustain extensive damage.

    Performing a Basic Engine Tune Up
    This article will guide you through a generic tune up on most any car or light duty gasoline-powered vehicle built within the last 20 years or so. We will presume that you are tuning up your engine because it has reached the mileage or time point to do so, and that you are NOT performing a tune up to cure an engine performance defect. We make this distinction because not all running/performance issues will be solved via a simple tune up.
