With the new year just days away, many people take time to step back and look at what was accomplished in 2011 and what they hope to accomplish in 2012. Starting the new year right should always include your vehicle too — is it ready for the upcoming year?
Regular and routine auto maintenance is vital to the longevity of your vehicle — most everyone understands that part of auto ownership. Spending a few moments and dollars one your car, truck or SUV now typically means spending less time and money on it in the future.
Stop in to Wiygul Automotive Clinic today in Burke, VA for a complete car inspection and auto tune-up. Our trained technicians will evaluate all of the important components of your vehicle to make sure it’s ready for the road in 2012.
The tune-up has changed throughout the years, as the demands of technology have necessitated it. But, the basics of how a gasoline engine functions have not — meaning the essentials in a tune-up are largely the same as well. Since an engine needs clean gas and air in the engine’s cylinders to fuel the combustion of a spark plug, all of these items are necessary to make the engine work. Plugged fuel injectors, air and fuel filters that are dirty and corroded spark plugs all lead to decreased engine performance. When the engine does not perform at its best, the gas mileage and overall performance will suffer.
Other items that should be inspected regularly — so why not at the beginning of the year — include your tires, heating and cooling system, transmission, belts, brakes and of course all of your operating likes such as brake lights and tail lights. Each of the systems and parts must work together for the vehicle’s best performance, and for your safety as well. Stop in today at Wiygul Automotive Clinic and we will have you — and your vehicle — ready for 2012 in no time!
Happy New Year everyone!
