How often does my vehicle need a tune-up?

Tune-ups prevent maintenance on your car's engine. How often do vehicles need tune-ups? They are a service that includes the replacement of spark plugs, air filters and possibly a few other items and an oil change. In older cars, tune-ups are needed about every 30,000-45,000 miles. But today with most newer cars they can drive for much longer without a tune-up.

Conventional spark plugs have to be replaced every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Platinum-tipped or Iridium spark plugs usually last for 50,000 to 120,000 miles.

Why Does My Car Veer To The Right or Left?

Have you ever been driving down a straight road and felt as if you were struggling to keep your wheel centered? Why does my car veer to one side? A slight shift to the right could be normal, but if it feels like your vehicle is pulling to the right or the left, this could be a big problem. There are a few things that can cause your vehicle to veer sharply to the right. The main issues could be the vehicle alignment, tires, or problems with the brakes.

If the issue is the vehicle alignment, it could mean that your tires are no longer set evenly and parallel with one another. An excellent way to realize you need a new alignment is to think back to when the vehicle last had it done. If you can't remember, it's time to get that done! Other indicators that your alignment is slipping is an unpleasant screeching sound from the tires being out of place, a crooked/hard to turn the steering wheel, and uneven wear along the tire tread, showing how uneven the alignment is.
