Tune Up Service

Tuneup Service

When it comes to getting your vehicle in here to Chuck’s Auto Repair for tuneup service you know you need but have been putting off, we understand completely that life has a way of making scheduled maintenance seem like the least of your priorities.

Neglect your vehicle’s tuneup service for too long and it will start hiccupping. It may not start when you need it to. This may also trigger a check engine light and cause poor gas mileage or car vibration. It may die in traffic as you’re turning left at a busy intersection, posing a serious safety risk. It may make you late for work, late to pick up the kids from school. It may cause your increasingly-expensive sack of frozen food to begin thawing as you sit on the side of the road waiting for rescue by AAA or a loved one. (Not a whole lot of fun to think about, is it?)

Please take a few moments and watch our video below which helps visually explain the importance of spark plugs in keeping your vehicle on the road.




Tuneup Service Details

Regardless of the make and model of your vehicle, standard tuneup service includes a painstaking inspection to make sure everything is in working order. If something out-of-the-ordinary is amiss, we let you know and get your okay to fix it before diving in.

At Chuck’s Auto Repair in North Seattle and Shoreline our vehicle tuneup service includes preventive maintenance, necessary adjustments, and a performance analysis.  If your vehicle is misbehaving in any way—starting harder than it should, stalling, misfiring, guzzling gas, losing power, or any other anomaly—let us know. We’ll look for and determine the cause and give you a reliable quote to fix it.

During a standard tuneup we’ll replace (as needed) spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor and check and replace, clean or adjust points and condensers, timing belts, ignition wires, air and fuel filters, PCV valves, vital fluids, belts and hoses, and safety items (lights, wipers, tires and tire pressure, horn, and more). We’ll also check idling speed, the choke on engines with carburetors, fuel injectors, compression/power balance, manifold intake vacuums, batteries, exhaust emissions, and trouble codes if needed. In short, we’ll make sure your vehicle is road-worthy and purring like a kitten.

We had a great experience at Chuck's. Our car was overdue for a much needed tune up! These guys understand quality work and customer service. This was my first experience taking a car to them but it won't be the last.
