Why does my car misfire?

Why does my car misfire?

If your car has a misfire it is most likely due to the fact the spark plugs are worn out and are due for replacement. Most cars and pickups need a tune up between 30,000 and 90,000 miles and that all depends on the engine that is in your vehicle. If it's been a while since your car has had it's spark plugs changed, give us a call and we'll check to make sure there isn't something else going on.  Give us a call at 541-791-2886 or request an appointment online.

Why does my car need a tune up?

Depending on your specific engine your car should have a tune up anywhere from 30,000 to 90,000 miles. When a tune up is performed the spark plugs and wires/boots are changed. The spark plugs are an important component that allows your engine to perform to the best of it's ability. When they are worn it can cause run-a-bility issues.  If it's been awhile since you had a tune up on your engine give us a call or request an appointment online and we will let you know how often and when it should be done.  Happy Adventures, Heather

Why should I change my spark plugs?

Spark plugs should be changed every 30K to 90K depending on the type and your engine. When your spark plugs are old they do not work as well and then your engine does not work as well and it can cause issues from run-ability to poor fuel mileage.  Give us a call and we can let you know if you're due for new spark plugs.
