time for tune-up?

Asked by Oct 13, 2014 at 03:27 PM about the 2005 Toyota Camry Solara SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Toyota Solara with 68,000 miles.  I think it's time for a tune-up, but my mechanic brother says it's not.  I get regular oil changes and he says that's all I need until I hit 100,000 miles.  Somehow that doesn't sound right to me.

Your Brother is correct. Today's ignition systems have no moving parts that are subject to wear. Most manufacturers use iridium spark plugs as well. Iridium spark plugs will easily go 100,000 miles. HTH. - Jim
