When your vehicle undergoes a proper tune-up, the fuel system, ignition system, computer system, and emission system all work together in perfect harmony. This means peak combustion chamber efficiency — or better performance and higher savings at the gas pump.

Schedule Your Tune-up Service
Our tune-ups can extend the life of your car and protect its value, as well as keep you from being stuck on the side of the road.
COMPREHENSIVE CAR TUNE-UPS
Auto repair shops perform tune-ups by simply lifting the hood without putting it on a lift. Not here.
Our service typically consists of replacing plug wires, spark plugs, and air filters when they’re past their prime. We then follow manufacturer recommendations when replacing the key components.
During a tune-up, we will double-check if your vehicle requires air or fuel filter replacement.
TUNE-UP SERVICE DEPENDING ON UNIQUE NEEDS
We understand that each make and model comes with unique needs. Our expert auto mechanics will help you determine which specific service is right for your vehicle based on its past use and typical driving conditions.
The procedure we follow depends on the age of your car and its mechanical configuration. We also perform tune-ups services at regularly scheduled intervals.
Maintain fuel economy and prevent major issues down the road by calling the tune-up experts at Shadetree Automotive.
We look forward to serving you.
BMW IGNITION AND TUNE-UPS
The ignition system on BMWs has become fairly basic.
All current engine packages have gotten rid of distributors and spark plug wires. BMW engines now utilize a coil-over spark plug ignition system.
The vehicle’s onboard computer utilizes signals from crankshaft sensors and camshaft sensors to determine when to send out the ignition signal.
The ignition signal then travels to whichever ignition coil is set to ignite in the firing sequence. The ignition coil then ignites the spark plugs. The spark then creates the spark needed to ignite the fuel, air, and compression in your engine.
Most BMW garages now recommend performing a tune-up every 100k miles. BMW tune-ups consist of Iridium spark plugs and then inspecting all the other ignition parts.
It is also common to have to replace the ignition coil boots at the same time as the spark plugs. As the ignition coil boots age over time, they can become worn and create extra resistance.
The extra resistance can lead to the failure of one or more ignition coils. Although ignition coil replacement is a fairly easy repair, the ignition coils themselves can be slightly expensive.
