GIVE YOUR CAR REGULAR TUNE-UPS

2010-02-01

The regular tune-up of a vehicle essentially consists of checking tire pressure, level of engine oil, spark plugs, fan belt, suspension, brakes, battery, exhaust system and level of coolant fluid (source: Association française des automobilistes).
Poor maintenance may result in up to 15 % increase in a vehicle’s fuel consumption and even greater toxic emissions (source: Office de l’efficacité énergétique, Ressources naturelles Canada).
The best way to ensure that your vehicle is working cleanly and economically while being respectful of the environment is to follow the maintenance schedule provided in your owner’s manual (source: CAA Québec).
