View Full Version : When to tune up?

When should one consider a tune up? I have a 01' X-Star with 400 hrs. I don't think it has ever had a tune up. It does have the LTR with norstar ignition. I know that some of the cars today don't recommend a tune up for up to 100,000 miles.

Change the motor oil (2-3 times a year), transimission oil (once a year) inspect the oil pump gear (with oil change), check for leaks and your done. I changed the plugs once in 3 years on my LTR and it ran like a champ. I sure wish my new boat had the LTR, its a great engine!

I do new plugs and clean my flame arrestor every year. I do new plug wires, cap, and rotor every three years.
