I own a Chevrolet Colorado. For the last couple of weeks, it is showing a decrease in the fuel efficiency. And I'm facing an issue in it's performance as well. Kindly suggest some recovery methods? Will the tune-up services make any change?
I have been asking few of my friends who are automobile experts and few suggested me that tune-ups are necessary. But, I'm tensed about the cost which I need to pay. I believe and pray that no more problems arise or else I will have to spend more.
One of my mates who is in Toronto told me that about a tune-up service provider in Toronto(, but I will have to check out for it. If anyone has used it, please share the pros and cons or else any other suggestions are always accepted.
Hope to resolve the issue soon with limited spend.
Thanks in advance

Spark plugs need to be replaces every 50 to 70k miles, even though gm states platnums will go 100k. They dont the electrode erodes qith time and changes apark performance. Follow your owners manual for severe service and your vehicle should last a long time. No one drives under optimal normal conditions.
