New and old spark plugs

We’ve all been there. One day our car is running smoothly and efficiently, somewhere down the line the vehicle starts running with a bit of trouble, but nothing you feel too alarmed about. Then, “out of nowhere” our vehicle has some major issues that cause it to run rough or not at all. With other stresses feeling up our lives, sometimes it’s our trusty transport that ends up not getting the regular attention it needs. No matter if your car is a cherished classic or brand-new steel stead with less than 1,000 miles, tune-ups are always a necessity. If you’ve been putting off your tune-up, now’s the time to get it done with the help of Master Muffler!

We’ll Make Sure Your Car Starts Every Time

There’s nothing worse than being ready to hit the open road, and suddenly your car is difficult, tricky, or altogether impossible to start. Usually, a car begins to give us warning signs before it stops turning over altogether, but if you don’t know the “symptoms” it can be difficult to know when it’s time for a tune-up. Watch for:

  • Longer than normal engine turn-over
  • Weak engine start-up

The issue could be as simple as a weak battery, an old fuel pump, or weak spark plugs. All of which are rather simple fixes for an experienced mechanic. Now’s the time to make sure your car starts strong every time!

We’ll Take Care of a Rough Idle

There’s nothing quite as annoying as trying to ramp up speed when getting on a busy freeway and a foot on the pedal being met with rough resistance. If your vehicle is producing audible knocks when traveling up steep hills or running rough when accelerating, there’s your sign of engine inefficiency. What could this mean?

  • Your spark plugs are failing to ignite

Engine and spark plug issues, although easy fixes aren’t something to be trifled with. Don’t wait for your peaceful drive to be full of knock and shaky idling and acceleration. What time is it? Time for a tune-up.

We’ll Get You the Best Gas Mileage

You may have noticed that over the years your car has shown signs of lowered fuel efficiency. This likely isn’t just your car playing tricks on you. Over time, if your car isn’t running in tip-top shape, it’s likely that your fuel efficiency is taking a major hit. If you notice your gas mileage has become atrocious, it could be:

  • Poor spark plugs
  • Fuel injection problems

Although this might not affect the way your vehicle drives from point A to point B, it can mean spending more money on fuel than you should. A quick tune-up can improve your vehicle’s performance and overall fuel efficiency.

It’s Time for a Tune-Up with Master Muffler

When’s the last time your vehicle had a tune-up? If you can’t remember or it’s been over a year, it’s time to bring your car in! We’ll make sure everything is working as it should, whether that means a simple battery or spark plug change, or your regular oil change. Come see us today at one of our Utah locations.
