3 Reasons Why You May Need A Tune-Up


3 Reasons Why You May Need A Tune-Up

Getting a tune-up is essential when your ride is reaching high speeds in mere seconds. This causes a large amount of stress on your torque converter and transmission which can lead to major issues if you don’t keep up with regular maintenance. Here are some reasons why you may need a tune-up on your torque converter or transmission.

Cloggy oil
From the moment your ride is idling to the point it takes off at full force, your torque converter is working extremely hard pumping transmission fluid. By not changing out the fluid regularly, dirt or other harmful particles can start clogging your converter. This restricts the ease of flow and impacts the amount of torque your ride exerts when you blast off at the starting line. 


Grinding your gears
Drag racing takes a toll on your engine as it goes through drastic temperature changes throughout races. Regular maintenance makes keeping a close eye under the hood easier, helping you avoid anything worse than routine engine repairs. You wouldn’t want your clutch to pop out of gear right before a big race.

Saving green
Sometimes saving money beats having something new. A lot of common issues we hear about can be fixed with a simple tune-up. Tune-ups catch issues that save you from pricey projects, like buying a new torque converter or transmission. It’s also less time-consuming than replacing major parts, meaning you’ll be back on the track sooner than the Christmas tree turns green.
