Subaru Engine Tune Up in San Carlos, CA

Your Subaru’s proper functioning is determined by the combined efforts of different components in your vehicle. The engine is the one of the most important components in your Subaru. While your vehicle may continue moving if some components are faulty, any problem with your engine may get you stranded on the side of the road. Even though most modern vehicles are self-tuning, we still recommend bringing your Subaru for a tune-up from time to time. Toole’s Garage in San Carlos can provide Subaru tune-up services, along with hundreds of other services your vehicle may require.

Even though computers watch over most of the functions that used to be performed during tune-ups, and adjust parameters in real time, sometimes things will get so far out of the normal range that the computer cannot compensate, and a tune up service becomes a necessity.

Signs your Subaru is overdue for an engine tune up

  • High fuel consumption

Most cases of high fuel consumption can be traced to a problem with the engine. Your Subaru may use up more fuel than normal if some of its components are wearing out.

  • Strange noises

If you hear a knocking sign coming from under the hood of your vehicle, it usually means one or more component in the engine are worn out and need to be replaced. Unusual engine noises are never normal, so don’t ignore this warning sign.

  • Check engine light illuminates

While the check engine light illuminating might tell you that there’s a problem, you will need the expertise of a mechanic to identify the exact issue with your engine and to repair it. Dashboard warning lights usually indicate that the problem has gotten serious and must be attended to as soon as possible.

  • Struggle to accelerate

As a Subaru owner, you’re probably accustomed to how fast your vehicle responds when you press the gas pedal. If you have to press the pedal all the way down before your Subaru tries to accelerate, it could be because of clogged fuel injectors, compromised distributor points or other issues that a tune-up can remedy.

So even though modern vehicles are self-tuning to a large degree, now and then you will need to bring your Subaru for a tune-up.  Our mechanics have extensive Subaru service and repair experience, and we back their work with a nationwide 36 months / 36,000 miles warranty.
