The Key Signs That Your Vehicle Needs Tuning. You may be experiencing some very unusual issues happening with your vehicle – it may be acting a little weird and that might just be because it’s trying to tell you that it needs some tuning up. If you’re the owner of a vehicle, you should consult your manufacturer for the recommended service intervals. Tune ups are usually required each 10,000 or 20,000 miles. We’ll show you some of the key signs that show you your vehicle needs to get a good tuning. If the warning lights on your dashboard light up (and remain lit) when you start your car, it may indicate potential problems or actual problems with your vehicle’s system or a component within it. If your vehicle is stalling at stops, when you speed up or at any other time, then it may be that a problem is looming around. If you realize that when your vehicle is very sluggish when starting up in the morning, then you probably need to schedule a tune up for your vehicle. It may be as a result of a weak battery, a defective starter or some other issue. If you are experiencing lessened fuel efficiency in your vehicle, then you need to tune up before it leads to a problem. If your vehicle’s brakes are soft or noisy, then it’s time for a tune up. Your brake pads, rotors and brake fluid are wear and tear items which you should have periodically replaced or maintained. If you’re hearing unexplained noises, such as squealing when turning the steering wheel, it’s probably a very strong signal that you need to do some tuning up to your vehicle. If your automatic gear shifts are no longer smooth, reliable or efficient and if your vehicle tends to hesitate when you shift shifting from drive to revers or from reverse to drive – you need to get a tune up done.
