A Few Details
Although the term “tune-up” is often tossed around, not all drivers know what’s actually involved. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual will specify recommended service points and intervals. Some preventive maintenance practices are completed more frequently than others. Oil changes, fluid checks, and tire pressure monitoring typically occur sooner than the full tune-up. Generally, a tune-up refers to more in-depth services such as planned replacement of worn parts with a somewhat short lifespan and sometimes fluid changes or flushes rather than mere top-offs. For instance, air and fuel filters should be replaced to ensure that flow is not restricted. Also, the spark plug wires, the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve, and the oxygen sensor need replacing. One of our technicians will check and clean your spark plugs, too. Cleaning will be sufficient if they’re still good, but we’ll need to replace them if the tip is eroding away or the spark plugs are otherwise damaged. Depending upon the advised schedule, the cabin air filter may need changing, and your auto may need a brake inspection. Likewise, it may be time for a transmission fluid change and/or coolant flush.
Beyond the Tune-Up
In addition to the mechanical auto work that constitutes a tune-up, Mastertek Auto Repair takes care of people. We start by acting as a workplace family. We share meals and discuss the latest topics in vehicle repair. Those things make us strong, ready to take on the challenge of any automobile you bring to our shop.

Once we have your vehicle, you can wait on-site and use our complimentary WiFi or leave it behind. We’ll keep you updated by text or email. Also, we’ll post our findings in our digital virtual inspection (DVI) system so that you will have access now and in the future. We accept cash, check, and card payments, so select the best method for you. Our team is also proud to be active community members.
