Here is the check list. This should also be in your owners manual.

Inspect Brakes and Traction Control
Drive Belt

Fluid - Differential
Inspect front/rear axle fluid level and add fluid as needed. Inspect constant velocity joints and axle seals for leaking. Replace Engine Oil

Change engine oil and filter as indicated by the GM Oil Life System (or every 12 months, whichever occurs first). Reset the indicator. Never drive the vehicle more than 16 000 km (10,000 miles) without and oil and filter change. The system will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner. Fuel Filter

Oil Filter, Engine

Rotate Tires

What is the cost for a tune up

Cars don't require a tune up like they did 20 yrs ago. There is a list of recommended service items found in the owners manual for mileage intervals.
At 100k I would say the filters and spark plugs should be replaced, along with the trans fluid and several things inspected. Prices would vary depending on where you live, so check with some local shops.

stalls, are complex, there will be no easy online answers.
but here is a short list. of stalls.
the answer too all is doing tests with real tools, guessing will be $$$$$$$

1: never tuned up. leads the list. (100 years in a row,btw)
2: bad cam or spark timing for a list of reasons. (timing lights)
3: bad fueling. (clogged fuel filter due to never do doing tune-ups)
4: EGR valve stuck open.
5: bad engine compression. (gage it)

tuneup means, reading and following the service schedule in the operators guide (free to get) and espically the 60,000 mile list. !!!

My chevy has about 98000 miles. When is tune up recommended.what is involved in the tune up?

what engine? The fuel filter is in the fuel tank, Spark plugs should be replaced, throttle body cleaned, and the truck generally checked over, battery , belts, brakes, tires ect. Spark plugs, trans fluid, filter, transfer case fluid change, are all due at 100k. You should have the 100K service done. Of course they base that on if you have been following the service schedule. Your owners manual will list all things that are due.

My car is throwing a code for misfire on cylinders 1 and 3. It has 59000 miles and has had all required maintnence done? Is it a known issue or a fluke. I shouldn't have to do a tuneup until...

100,000 mile tune-up intervals is a complete joke! The only reason the manufacturer does this, is so they can market the car as "maintenance free". Spark plugs are relatively cheap compared to catalytic converters. If you drive around with a marginal ignition system you will destroy the cat and O2 sensors. You will also get terrible gas mileage. Change the plugs every 40,000 miles regardless of what they're made of and what the clowns that sold the car say. They cost peanuts! That said, your miss could be a bad plug, a fouled injector, or a bad ignition wire / coil extension. Change the plugs now, erase the codes and see if they return. If any miss codes return, you'll need to do some further diagnosis into the other items I mentioned but you need the plugs now anyway and they will probably solve the problem.

Is tune up needed in toyota altis 2002? gas consumption has gone up to 6 kms. per liter

officially, there are no "tune-ups" anymore
there are just "maintenance" schedules
you did not list miles and or engine but I am assuming you are over 150k and have a 4cyl

therefore the following should have been replaced
spark plugs
fuel filter
air filter
transmission fluid/filter
