Re: tune up check list for 59000 miles
Here is the check list. This should also be in your owners manual.
Brakes and Traction Control
Fluid - Differential
Inspect front/rear axle fluid level and add fluid as needed. Inspect constant velocity joints and axle seals for leaking.Replace
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.

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. !!!
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.
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.
the check engine light wont come on for the fuel filter.it comes on when the computer detects a problem from one of the many sensors.the best way to find out why the light comes is to go to autozone they will check it for free and let you knowthe problem is....
