Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.
Here is a list. Bad timing,dirty air filter,cheap gas,old spark plugs,bad spark plug wires,bad fuel pump,bad fuel regulator,bad exhaust system meaning full of holes,dirty oil and oil filter,dirty fuel filter.
This would include your spark plugs or coils, the wires, a new distributor cap, an oil change, air filter, fuel filter, and a coolant flush. A tune up can make a car run like new again. Some don't change the fuel filter on a tune up but I have always said it is best too. They can get clogged up over time.
It varies greatly on how much you want to spend and how much of a tune up your doing. For me replacing all the spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor, air filter, oil change/ oil filter change and fuel filter change is a big tune up that would run a do it yourselfer about $80- $125.00 or more if you get higher performance parts. You can also add to that coolant flush and some good fuel additive. make sure to check your serpentine belt for cracks or wear.
tools you need.....socket set with a 5/8 sparkplug socket,plug gapper tool, and the proper gap
parts you need, sparkplugs,plug wires,fuel filter,air filter. replace each plug one at a time, change plug wire at same time. there should be no other adjustments needed as its all controlled by computer.
I would change the spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter, check and change air filter if dirty, check timing, check and top off all fluids, check or change transmission fluid, check brake pads/.shoes and drums/rotors for wear and check tire pressure, check the condition of all belts and hoses and replace as needed, check condition of radiator antifreeze and top off or replace as needed.
