Tune Ups




What We Do

How do I Know When I Need a Tune-up?:

There are many factors that let you know when you need a tune-up. Typically, your car’s age and mileage will let you know and/or the handbook will tell you what the manufacturer recommends. There are a variety of indications that might let you know that it’s time for a tune up, including:


    • You may notice some lights on the dashboard indicating it’s time for a tune-up or engine check
    • Your car feels as if it might stall, or it does stall
    • It becomes difficult to start the car
    • You’re getting low gas mileage
    • You don’t reach top speed very quickly
    • The engine is making banging noises
    • The engine idles roughly
    • The exhaust has a bad smell coming from it

What Would Be Done?

What’s Included in a Tune-up Anyway?

  • A detailed engine inspection
  • Replace worn or damaged spark plugs and wires/coil boots
  • Swap-out engine’s air filter
  • Replace the fuel filter
  • Clean throttle body
  • Clean fuel system
  • Replace distributor cap and rotor
  • Replace PCV valve
  • Oil change
  • Check Belts & hoses
  • Wiper blades checked & replaced
  • Tire check (replace, balance, rotate, alignment)
  • Other Miscellaneous items (as requested)

Something to Consider

Does Alpha Omega Service Electric Vehicles Too?

If you have an Electric Vehicle (EV), we can service that also!  We will:

  • Rotate the tires
  • Flush/replace the brake fluid
  • Service the coolant
  • Service the brakes (pads, rotors)
  • Provide battery care
  • Flush corrosive materials (such as road salt) from the car’s underbody (twice a year)

Every 15,000 miles:

  • Replace the windshield wiper blades

Every 36,000 miles:

  • Replace the cabin air filter

Every 75,000 miles;

  • Replace the hood and/or body lift support “gas struts”

Every 5 years:

  • Replace the hood and/or body lift support “gas struts”
  • Drain & fill the vehicle coolant circuits.

Even though electric vehicles may cost more to purchase than a conventional car, they’re generally cheaper to keep running when you have affordable home charging. Electric vehicles generally save their owners money because of the lower long-term maintenance costs.

The main reason for this is because Electric Vehicles eliminate over 24 mechanical components that would normally require regular service. An EV owner avoids paying for things like a regular “tune-up”, oil changes, cooling system flushes, transmission servicing, and replacing the air filter, spark plugs, and drive belts. Sources suggest electric vehicle owners spend roughly 1/3 of what regular car owners pay for regular service.

However, EVs are not maintenance-free and there are some things that people may not be aware of if they are coming from traditional combustion engine cars. While all automakers provide automobile owners with a standard set of periodic checks and services that are “recommended” in order to keep the vehicle’s warranty in effect. those warranties don’t last forever and sooner or later most owners are looking for competent, EV maintenance crews. Alpha Omega can provide expert care for both standard combustion engines and Electric vehicles so no matter what kind of car you have, you can get the trusted service you need from Alpha Omega.
