I reason I like this forum.

I know a diesel engine does not have spark plugs or a condenser,points so What is done on a "Tune Up"?
Is there setting the "Timing"?
Please forgive my "Diesel maintenance for Dummies" question

Thank you for not laughing too much

There's no "tune-up" for a modern diesel. Timing is electronically controlled and not settable, like it would be on an older diesel.
Maybe they call changing fuel filter and air filter a "tune-up".

I don't think I have used the term "tune-up" in twenty years... and neither has anyone my dealer. It's called "maintenance."
