There are various reasons as to why engine tuning can be necessary for your valuable vehicle. In case you have a diesel or petrol engine, dirty injectors present in it can bring down its performance in terms of economy & power. A buildup of carbon in the EFI can have the same effect. On the other hand, the engine can take serious damage if the timing chain or belt becomes worn.
The logbook of a vehicle serves as a guide supplied by its manufacturer and contains information pertaining to the suggested or specified service requisites. Thus,logbook servicing means performing extensive maintenance assessment of a vehicle as per the logbook. It can aid significantly in maintaining resale value of an automobile, increasing its lifespan and keeping its warranty untainted.
Fuel injection forms the basis of every modern-day car’s engine, and is controlled via computers in several ways like adaptive, direct, mechanical and sequential. But one thing is true for every fuel injection system - it starts collecting contaminants in its filter with passage of time, which makes the fuel spray pattern irregular. Another way the fuel system creates problems is by filling your car with contaminated fuel.
As the owner of a 4WD, you might get tricked into thinking that your vehicle can handle rugged roads like a piece of cake. However, without regular and effective maintenance, your 4WD can give up on you all of a sudden just as much as a normal car. What’s worse is that the breakdowns would be very costly to get resolved. Due to the harsh nature of four wheel driving and/or towing caravans, boats, etc, 4WDs require extra attention when servicing.
In any vehicle, the steering & suspension systems decrease braking distances, maintain contact between the road & the tyres, and also offer cornering stability. Issues with the two components generally manifest in the form of quick & irregular tyre wear, squeaks, longer stopping distances when braking or clunks over bumps and an overall sloppy feel.
The modern automatic transmission is far more complex than earlier models and is under more stress with more powerful engines and larger towing loads. This causes more heat to be generated within the transmission, and the same heat gradually reduces the protective qualities of the transmission fluid with passage of time, in addition to creating buildup of contaminants within the transmission. Without proper servicing on a regular basis, these stresses can shorten the life of the transmission and cause it to perform very poorly.
