Keeping your car in good shape is very important. Making sure that the engine has been tuned and the car’s fuel efficiency is on par with recommended levels is also very important. If there’s an issue with your car, especially an electrical or mechanical problem, you should get it checked out right away. Some issues you might experience include:

  • Jerks and throttle missing when you accelerate the car
  • The car shuts off randomly
  • You notice weird sounds coming from under the car’s bonnet

Car engine tuning in Northamptonshire is offered by a number of different companies. It’s important for you to take your car for a tuning every six to eight months. Here are some basic things you should know about tuning your car’s engine.

Replace the Plugs

The spark plugs in your car’s engine are required for providing electricity to the engine and ensuring smooth performance. With time, these plugs get dirty, and the spark gets smaller and smaller. This will affect vehicle performance, fuel economy, as well as acceleration. Make sure you replace the plugs every eight to ten months.

Use an OBD II Scanner

There are certain issues that don’t really present themselves until you start looking for them. Using an OBD II scanner will make it easy for you to scan your vehicle for error codes in the sensors and the engine. If there are any error codes, you can get them fixed in their early stages, which will save you a great deal of money in the long run.
