Engine Performance Service in Boise, ID

Keep your engine performing its best with regular maintenance

Engine performance is how well an engine is operating. This is often characterized by how it behaves in relation to speed and load, using indicators such as fuel consumption, emissions, and the temperatures to determine overall engine health.

Understanding your engine’s performance is important because it can indicate problems in early stages, when they can still be fixed without causing additional damage. Some signs include:

  • Normal wear and tear
  • Clogged, dirty, or damaged parts
  • Malfunctioning parts such as sensors

Regular maintenance such as: regular oil changes, tune-ups, and adding additives to your oil or fuel can help improve engine performance and add to the longevity of your engine.

Regular oil changes are key

There are plenty of people in Boise whose vehicles are running after 150,000 or 200,000 miles. You can learn from what they're doing to keep your car on the road.

A common denominator is that they never skip an oil change. That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it's really not. First off, oil is the life blood of your engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that can damage your engine. Enough said.

There's another reason the scheduled oil change is so important. It's simple — a Tune Tech Fairview expert technician is going to be looking closely at your car. All of your fluid levels will be inspected and topped off so they won't get so low that damage can be done. If there is a significant fluid loss — let's use brake fluid as an example — our technicians can look for the cause of the loss and find the problem before it leads to an accident or costly repair.

Tune Tech Fairview's expert service technicians will also visually inspect the vehicle for worn belts and hoses, uneven tire wear, leaking shock absorbers and more. Problems get addressed before they lead to repairs that cost more than the car's worth. And our service advisors will be able to remind you of other services that the factory recommends you get done.

Just think of that oil change the same way as you do about going to the dentist for your six month cleaning and checkup. Don't skip it.

Of course, good maintenance costs money, but it's far cheaper than new car payments.
