I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix that has 78,000 miles on it. I’d like to have it serviced just because. What exactly do mechanics do during a tune up. Will my service be better if I take it to a Pontiac/GM Goodwrench place, or will a local mechanic do just fine?

Tune ups generally involve changing the spark plugs and wires, changing the oil and the oil filter, and replacing the air filter. I would think one mechanic can do just as well as another, given these fairly easy tasks. My only recommendation would be to take it to someone you trust. Or find someone who can teach you how to do it yourself and save money. Good luck.

Hi everyone, not sure if any of you saw my other post, but anyway my car is a mercedes 350SDL 1991 (about 150k miles).
I have two main issues that I just discovered recently.
1) my fuel gauge reads incorrectly- goes to Empty even though it shouldve been around 1/2 tank. It sometimes jumps back to the actual value, but will eventually go back to Empty. Sometimtes it will even move sporatically for a second or so .
2) this happened twice ot me the other day – once when parking and the other when pulling out in the middle of a Kturn – my car completely shut down. It looked like all my dashboards icons flashed for a split second and then the car went off. I turned it back on right after (both times) and drove it fine.

Could these problems be related? Does a tune-up check possible electrical issues such a these? Should i have it done at a chain tune-up place or at my mechanic. (both these issues started happening the same day- althought have not drivenmuch)

thanks for the help!
im asking this because I have a hunch the cars parts are working fine- because the mechanic is very good with foreign cars and it had been running fine before. However I know a lot of the cars functions run through the car computer – so even if the part is ok it might not function properly because of an incorrect computer reading right?
To jsygrove.. how much are we talking?
ok i filled the tank to full and now the gauge works fine and doesnt go to empty or anything — havent noticed the shutting down problem (issue #1) but then again that doesnt necessarily mean anything. That only happened twice ever- and im not sure what triggers it other than being idle – but ive been idle plenty of times in traffic and it has not happened

A tune up won’t check the issues you have. You have to have the problems diagnoses separately. Yours sounds like a computer problem.

My manual says to give the car a tune-up every 60,000 miles. However, I’ve heard some mechanics say it’s better not to have them, or you just don’t need them. What does a tune-up involve? I ask because my 2005 Aveo is almost at 60K miles and I really don’t have the kind of money to shell out on that kind of work if it’s not needed.

A tune generally involes;
-new oil and oil filter
-new air cleaner
-antifreeze check / replace
-new spark plugs
-new wires
-new timing belt and other belts (serpentine, a/c, power steering)
- transmission fluid check

But also keep in mind that the definition of a tune up varies greatly depending where you go. some will simply check the fluids and charge you money.

I just wanted to know what symptoms to look for in a car that that has not been for a tune-up in a while.

Poor performance, poor fuel efficiency, or both.
Eventually, excessive wear.
In a nutshell.

When do you usually do a Car Tune Up?

also what consists of a car engine tune up..

i rather do it my self instead of paying a mechanic to do it.

At 6000 miles. You replace the air and fuel filters, spark plugs, distributor cap and optionally rotor, check fluid levels, and should be done in conjunction with an Oil Change. If you do it yourself, make sure that all the parts that you buy are made for your specific car model, and make sure that the spark gaps have the proper gap.
