Engine Performance
Don't let your vehicle cost you more money at the pump than it should

Despite the misconception that many newer vehicles no longer require tune–ups, all vehicles require routine maintenance in order to avoid performance problems such as hard starting, misfiring, surging, hesitation, and stalling. And just as important, a proper tune–up will also save you money at the gas pump.

At Midas, we have developed an in–depth list of services you should have regularly performed along with any of the vehicle’s manufacturer’s scheduled maintenance.

Spark Plugs

  • Damaged or worn–out spark plugs can cause drivability problems and decrease fuel efficiency.
  • Depending on the type of spark plugs your vehicle uses, you should replace your spark plugs every 30,000 to 100,000 miles to maximize power, performance, and fuel economy.

Spark Plug Wires

  • Extreme under–hood temperatures, voltage spikes, debris, or corrosion can damage plug wires.
  • Have your spark plug wires inspected when you replace your spark plugs.

Air Filter

  • A dirty air filter blocks airflow to the engine and makes it work harder, causing a decline in horsepower and fuel economy.
  • The Air Filter should be inspected with every oil change. It is not uncommon, under certain driving conditions, for the air filter to be replaced frequently.

Fuel Filter

  • The fuel filter, PCV valve and breather element are often neglected during a routine tune–up, which can lead to a number of drivability problems.
  • Change them every two years or 24,000 miles to ensure proper performance and fuel efficiency.

Fuel Injection System Cleaner

  • Rough idle, engine hesitation and declining fuel economy are often due to fuel system deposits.
  • Adding a fuel system cleaner to your gas tank regularly, removes deposits and restores engine performance and fuel economy.

Don't forget, we have various maintenance packages where we'll inspect all of the above components and give you a thoroughly written estimate with whatever work needs to be performed. Midas is and will always be your one stop for complete car care.
