Regular vehicle service will add life to your car, SUV, or Minivan. The word tune-up use to be defined by a specific procedure of replacing your vehicle’s: spark plugs, contact points, distributor cap, and distributor rotor. Motor vehicles engine are managed by a computer and no longer require a distributor. Most vehicles now a days have a ignition coil directly on top or each spark plug and have therefore eliminated the need for the high voltage distribution system of old. This coil on plug system in conjunction with more expensive and advanced iridium spark plugs, have also made the spark plugs last longer. We have seen spark plug life spans go from 15,000 to 30,00, to 60,000 to 105,000 miles. With the advancement of engine technology and the wide spread use of the forced air injection or “turbos” the need to replace spark plug more frequently has increased.

The new BMW’s have gone from 100,000 to 30,000 mile spark plug intervals. We expect Toyota, Honda, and the New Ford Eco-boost to follow shortly as the car manufacturers continually monitor and improve vehicle efficiency and emissions reduction.
