Every vehicle requires a regular tune-up for optimal performance and efficiency. Our technicians at Jensen Tire & Auto can perform preventive maintenance, including tune-ups on your vehicle (usually every 30,000 miles). Jensen Tire & Auto provides quality, affordable tune-ups, as well as other auto repair services.
What tune-ups do: A routine tune-up can easily protect against major engine problems by changing worn components such as spark plugs and fuel filters. Keeping a regular tune-up schedule will help your vehicle last much longer, maintain higher fuel mileage and boost efficiency.
Why tune-up service is necessary: Vehicle parts have a life expectancy. These parts and their life expectancy are shown in your owner’s manual with specific manufacturer benchmarks, about every 30,000 miles. While these parts may last longer than the suggested time frame, it is a good idea to have them checked by a qualified technician at Jensen Tire & Auto on a regular basis. If these parts are not regularly inspected and a car diagnostic is not performed, a major issue could occur.

Auto Repair FAQ
What service warranties do you offer?
We at Jensen Tire & Auto are proud to offer one of the best service warranties in the industry. Our minimum warranty for any auto repair is 90 days or 4,000 miles, whichever comes first. Visit our warranties page for more information.
Should I use synthetic oil?
Some manufacturers recommend using synthetic oil in their vehicles. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to determine if is recommended for your vehicle before getting your oil changed.
Why change transmission fluid?
Transmission fluid is an internal lubricant just like engine motor oil. During certain driving conditions and mileage intervals, transmission fluid, because of wear and age, can break down and become contaminated. This may result in costly transmission repairs and possibly the need for replacement. As a general rule the transmission fluid and, in some instances, the transmission filter should be replaced at 25,000-mile intervals. You should always consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual for recommended service intervals before scheduling any transmission services.
When should my belts be changed?
You should begin checking your vehicle's belts at 20,000 miles. Things to look for include cracks, splits, glazing, peeling, greasy buildup, and splitting or missing sections. It you notice any of these conditions you should arrange to have all of your vehicle's belts simultaneously changed out. If a serpentine belt breaks, many other components including your vehicle's alternator, water pump, power steering, etc., will not function, resulting in further damage and costly auto repairs.
