Subaru Fans in NJ Tune Up for What is Sure to Be an Exciting Ride

Subaru service center in NJIf you’ve ever seen an old fashioned horror movie, then chances are you’ve seen some monsters being brought to life by channeling a bolt of lightning during a thunder storm. While this approach to electricity may not be the best one for jump starting your cars battery, it’s not entirely farfetched; every time your engine roars to life, you count on the spark from your spark plugs to make it run right!

One of the most important services that we carry out at our Subaru repair shop in NJ is the tune up, which includes swapping out the old spark plugs and spark plug wires to replace them with new ones.

Carrying out a tune up on a regular basis helps to avoid some serious problems, including misfires, hard starts, and decreased fuel efficiency. This service is typically recommended every 30,000 miles, but that interval can vary from vehicle to vehicle. If you plan to perform your own tune ups, be sure to consult your vehicle’s manual for the appropriate interval.

Simple Steps Keep Drivers Running Right

For the do-it-yourself types, carrying out aNew Jersey Subaru service center tune up can be a fairly quick and easy process. Just follow these simple steps:

  • Visit our Subaru parts center in NJ to pick up the appropriate spark plugs and wires for your vehicle.
  • Start when your engine is cool to avoid burning yourself on hot engine parts
  • Remove the spark plug wires. You should be able to slide the rubber boots off my hand. Remove them from both the cylinder heads and the distributor cap. If you don’t have the wiring diagram for your vehicle, it’s recommended that you do one plug and wire at a time to ensure proper wire placement.
  • Using a socket specifically designed for spark plugs, remove each spark plug.
  • Before inserting a new spark plug, be sure to gap it to the manufacturer’s specifications using a spark plug gap gauge.
  • Apply anti-seize lubricant to the threads of the spark plug, then use the spark plug socket to insert the spark plug into the cylinder head. Use a torque wrench to tighten it to the appropriate specifications.
  • Inset dielectric grease into the spark plug wire boot, then connect it to the spark plug and the appropriate spot on the distributor cap. Your vehicle’s manual should have a wiring diagram to ensure proper placement.

Once your done, you can enjoy the smooth, responsive performance that you love! For more information on doing your own tune ups, or to schedule a service appointment with our expert team, be sure to contact Subaru of Morristown online or to call our team directly at (866) 910-3466 today.
