Tune-ups and Drivability Diagnostics

Lowell's Auto Repair Provides Tune-ups and Drivability Diagnostics


A tune-up is a general maintenance service that involves replacing and/or adjusting various components of your car’s engine, such as spark plugs, air and fuel filters, and ignition wires. The goal of a tune-up is to ensure that your engine is running smoothly and efficiently, which can help improve fuel economy and prolong the life of your engine.

Driveability Diagnostics

Driveability diagnostics, on the other hand, are a set of tests and inspections that are performed when your car is experiencing problems with its performance or drivability. Some common symptoms that may require driveability diagnostics include rough idling, stalling, hesitation, poor acceleration, and excessive emissions.

During a driveability diagnostics service, our mechanics will use specialized equipment to scan your car’s onboard computer system and identify any error codes that may be present. We may also perform a visual inspection of your car’s engine components and systems to identify any obvious issues.

Once the problem has been identified, we will typically perform a series of tests and adjustments to correct the issue. This may include cleaning or replacing fuel injectors, replacing spark plugs or ignition coils, adjusting the engine timing, or replacing malfunctioning sensors or components.

Overall, both tune-ups and driveability diagnostics are important services that can help keep your car running smoothly and efficiently, and can prevent more serious problems from developing over time. If you’re experiencing any issues with your car’s performance, it’s a good idea to have it inspected by one of Lowell’s professional mechanics to determine the underlying cause and address it as soon as possible.
