What parts do i need for a tune up


if it is an EFI engine then the parts that you will need for a tune up will be indicated in the fault codes
The ECM of the vehicle continually tunes the engine while running ( around 100 times a minute) and as long as all the sensors are within parameters ,the engine will remain in tune
any sensors that are failing will leave a fault code and just because the engine light is not on doesn't mean that there are no fault codes recorded
basically "good mechanics do not fix what isn't broken"

Engine problems


Hi there:
When was the last time the engine was full tuned up? This sounds like a classic ignition misfire! They usually go bad under a load like under acceleration, but can be noticeable at any time.


It is very important to have your engine equipped with good tune up parts or you may be causing damage to other components of you car like the catalytic converter which can be expensive.


Possible causes:

Ignition misfire causes by any bad tune up part and or ignition coil or coils.
Bad spark plugs, spark plug wires and cap and rotor (if equipped)
Wrong tune up parts spark plug, wires etc...


The quickest way to check the ignition components, is by looking closely for leaking secondary voltage. Visual look at all the tune up parts to see if you can see any sparks coming from any of the wires or coil (or coils) when the vehicle is running. If not, you can put your hand on the coil/coils and wires when the engine is running and see if you feel any small voltage leaking form the tune up parts.

It will leak secondary ignition voltage from the tune up parts caused by high resistance from carbon tracking if they are bad. This is very common if the tune up parts are not changed regularly!


If any is found, the tune up parts are simply bad and will need to be replaced! If none is found than you can spray a mist of water on the tune up parts when the engine is running and see if that causes the engine to stumble or run rough at all. Again, if it does, the tune up parts are bad and will need to be replaced.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Hi I need to make tune up to automatic transmision for Mitsubishi Outlander 2003 but the auto parts told me this auto don't need this tune up


Engines get tuned up. Transmissions get the filter and fluid changed. The auto parts store guy misunderstood what you want to do.
