This can happen to any vehicle regardless of make, including Toyota, Honda, Ford, and Hyundai.
What does an auto tune up service entail?
A basic auto tune up service consists of replacing your vehicle's spark plugs and performing other adjustments to restore engine performance. There are various vehicle parts we at Boyd Automotive & Tire can inspect to determine which services your vehicle needs, including:
- Battery voltage and charging voltage.
- Engine's various parts.
- Engine vacuum, to detect exhaust restrictions and air leaks.

If the initial check-up reveals no major faults, the spark plugs, air filters, fuel filters, and fuel cap (if required) should be replaced for preventative maintenance. If your vehicle doesn't meet federal emissions standards, its oxygen sensor should be replaced as well.
