A simple car tune up can do wonders for older model cars, while newer vehicles can benefit greatly from new car diagnostic equipment. At Auto Specialty of Lafayette, our many years of experience allow us to diagnose any car, no matter its age, model, or origin. Whether you drive an older, domestic vehicle or a newer, sporty car, our auto shop is equipped to repair, replace, and rebuild most components of your vehicle. Contact us at (765) 477-7300 for more information about our car maintenance and auto repair services, including brake repair, tire rotation, and catalytic converter replacement services in Lafayette and West Lafayette.
At Auto Specialty of Lafayette, we recommend that older model vehicles come in for a car tune up at least once a year to avoid unnecessary repairs in the future. However, if you have noticed your vehicle losing performance or fuel economy, or its “check engine” light has come on for unknown reasons, it may be time to come in and see us. Typically, as part of a car tune up we inspect, replace and service the following areas of your vehicle:
- Spark Plugs
- Air Filters
- Fuel Filters
- Distributor Caps
- Fuel System
- Engine Fluids (including steering and brake fluid, coolant, antifreeze, and oil)
Keeping your engine clean and running smoothly can add years to its life, even if it’s decades old already.
Car Diagnostic Service
Although we stress regular tune ups for older vehicles, newer model vehicles still require regular care. Auto Specialty of Lafayette has a state-of-the-art auto diagnostic system that is completely wireless and diagnoses any ailment your vehicle might have—and quickly. From this initial diagnosis, we can repair damages and even “flash-program” your vehicle’s on-board computer to eliminate false warnings and stalling problems, as well as improve emissions and general drivability.
Proper Car Maintenance is Key
Protect your investment and enjoy a well-running vehicle for years. Every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, or after three months, performing an oil change can significantly improve your cars performance and gas consumption. Auto Specialty of Lafayette also recommends performing vehicle maintenance every 30000, 60000, and 90000 miles to replace spark plugs, filters, and other essential parts of your vehicle.
