Your Oxygen Sensor Needs Replacing:
It is your oxygen sensor that measures the amount of unburned oxygen is in your vehicle’s exhaust system. If you do not replace it your engine will burn more fuel than needed. You will also experience the loss of fuel economy if this is ignored. A faulty sensor can also cause damage to your spark plugs and catalytic converter.
Loose Gas Cap:
Or it could be just as simple as a loose, damaged or missing gas cap. Your gas cap seals the fuel system and helps maintain the pressure within the fuel tank. It also prevents gasoline fumes from being released into the atmosphere while you aren’t driving your car. If you do not replace the gas cap you can lose fuel through evaporation which means more trips to the gas pump. So stop by today and let the specialists at Redline Total Car Care check it out. While you are there we will give your vehicle the once over as well.
Catalytic Converter Needs Replacing:
Your catalytic converter helps protect our environment by converting harmful carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. Damage usually occurs due to neglected maintenance. If you do not replace it you will experience reduced performance and fuel economy and your car may run at a higher temperature.
Mass Airflow Sensor Needs Replacing
Your mass airflow sensor measures the amount of air entering the engine to determine how much fuel is needed to run your engine efficiently. A Faulty sensor can cause damage to spark plugs, O2 sensors or catalytic converter. You will experience reduced performance and fuel economy
Spark Plugs Or Spark Plug Wires Need Replacing:
The spark plug wires deliver the spark from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. Your spark plugs ignite the air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber of your vehicle. If you do not replace them you will experience poor performance and reduced fuel economy. Also, worn plugs and plug wires can cause clogged catalytic converter or damage to ignition coils and O2 sensors

Brakes are critical for your vehicle’s performance and your safety. It is important to know how your brakes work, and when your vehicle needs brake repair & service. Redline Total Car Care will help make sure your brakes function properly at all times with our brake repair services.
A quick breakdown on brakes
Most braking systems feature numerous integral parts working together to ensure your vehicle properly stops. When you press the brake pedal, the master cylinder releases brake fluid, sending hydraulic pressure through brake lines and activating your vehicle’s brake pads (or shoes). These pads make contact with spinning rotors (or drums) to slow down or stop your vehicle. Other systems use sensors to activate the brake system, but the end result is the same.
The parts in your brake system wear down over time and eventually need replacement. Replacing brake pads is the most common brake repair, because the pads erode each time you press the brake pedal. If the pads wear down too much without being replaced, the pads’ metal housing will make contact with the metal rotors, creating safety issues and potentially leading to rotor replacement.
Is it time for brake service?
Know the warning signs before your brakes reach the point of major problems. Use your senses to alert you to potential issues. Here are some common signs to watch for:
- Brake warning light comes on while driving
- Brake fluid is low and/or appears dirty
- Grinding or squealing sounds when pressing the brake pedal
- Feeling a pulsation or “sponginess” when pressing the brake pedal
- Your vehicle steers or pulls to one side while braking
- Strange sounds or smells
- If you notice any of these signs or any other out of the ordinary sights, sounds or sensations in the brake system you should make an appointment immediately. Ignoring brake system problems usually makes things worse in the long run. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

In today’s cars that are computer controlled, the definition of a tune up has really changed. On most cars the only parts that can really be replaced are the Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Fuel Filters, Air Filters and Positive Crankcase Ventilation Valves (PCV Valve). There are not any components that require adjusting, setting or dialing in.
In the old days we had carburetors, points, condensers, distributors with distributor caps & rotors. These all needed replaced and readjusted periodically. In our cars today,
The computer of the vehicle controls the valve timing, ignition timing and fuel delivery. Malfunctions on a vehicle can be camouflaged by the computer, whose function is to keep the engine running as efficiently as possible for as long as possible. It will signal a Service Engine Soon, or Check Engine Light when it detects a problem. But it will try to compensate for that problem at the same time, so the vehicle will still run fairly decent.
On today’s cars it is best to perform tune-ups based on mileage. The vehicle’s manufacturer has mileage based intervals for replacement of these parts and other maintenance services. These are designed to be performed preventatively so that the parts do not fail prior to replacement. Some common mileage intervals and maintenance recommended is as follows:
Every 3,000 miles you should do the following:
1. Replace oil
2. Replace oil filter
3. Inspect air filter – replace as needed
4. Check and top off all fluids
5. Check tire pressure (fill as needed)
6. Every 7,500 miles:
7. Replace wiper blades
8. Every 15,000 miles:
9. Replace fuel filter
10. Replace cabin air filter
11. Every 30,000 miles:
12. Replace automatic transmission fluid
13. Replace automatic transmission filter
14. Flush cooling system
15. Replace pcv valve (recommend whenever spark plug replacement interval is)
16. Replace spark plugs (vehicles with non platinum spark plugs)
17. Fuel Injection and Carbon Clean Service
18. Every 50,000 miles:
19. Replace fluids for:
…….B. Manual transmission
…….C. Transfer case
…….D. Power steering
20. Every 60,000 miles:
…….A. Replace pcv valve
…….B. Replace spark plugs (this includes vehicles equipped with platinum spark plugs)
…….C. Replace spark plug wires
…….D. Replace timing belt (this varies per manufacturers specifications on your vehicle)
The consequences of waiting for parts to fail can be, lack of performance, loss of gas mileage, hard starting issues and etc. For example, if the tune up parts, like the spark plugs get completely worn it can cause the vehicle to misfire and can also cause a hard starting issue. These conditions can cause damage to the exhaust system of the vehicle. If your vehicle has an inline fuel filter it can get clogged over time and can cause fuel pump failure.
So, we recommend following your manufacturer’s specifications on tune-ups and other maintenance, based on mileage intervals which will add longevity to the life of your vehicle.
