Auto Tune Up in Castro Valley
Welcome to Adams Autoworx in Castro Valley, a family owned and operated auto repair shop. Tune-up service is among the hundreds of services and repairs we offer.
“Tune up” used to be quite an involved affair, but with the advent of computer controlled fuel injection, and computers controlling more and more auto functions, and sensors feeding information to the computers, modern tune up is a lot less complicated.
Newer, more computerized vehicles, have no need of a traditional tune-up because the vehicle is “self-tuning”. On-board computer monitors engine and emissions in real time. It adjusts the air-gasoline mixture to keep engine performance and emissions within manufacturer recommended parameters. If the computer cannot correct a problem, it will illuminate the check engine light. This alerts the owner to have the vehicle professionally inspected and diagnosed. We would also check belts, hoses, check for leaks, and at proper time intervals replace fuel pump and spark plugs.
For older vehicles, tune-up meant ignition system check, spark plugs replacement, fuel system and emission control system check, and overall engine check. Mechanics truly had to do some “tuning” to get the engine and emission system parameters back within factory guidelines.
At our Castro Valley auto repair shop we can perform both modern and “traditional” tune-up (on older vehicles). Regardless of vehicle age, you can expect friendly service advisors and highly skilled mechanics working on your vehicle, as well as:
