For a standard tune-up, the parts needed include an air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. You should also have oil, transmission fluid, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and brake fluid available. A tune-up consists of topping off or replacing fluids, changing spark plugs and spark plug wires, changing the fuel, oil, and air filters, and checking the pressures of the tires. More detailed tune-ups run a diagnostic test on the vehicle to check for any codes that indicate additional issues.
replace your fuel filter, and air filter ! you mean your fuel pump turns on , correct ? how do you know this for sure ? check all fuses, and especially GROUNDS ! ground wires get overlooked , and they should'nt . without them, you got nothing !!! tune-up lately ? replace spark plugs & wires ! distributor cap & rotor . oil change lately ? do it ! spark plug wires get old, hard, and crack, causing them to short out ! check all vacuum lines, if you have a throttlebody, tighten the mounting bolts, they do get loose !
So you want to tune it up , but someone has to tell you it has no wires? Have you looked at the engine at all? why do you want to do a tune up? The coils are very problem prone, and you need to use care in replacing the spark plugs, use only Auto-lite or Motorcraft platinum spark plugs, and use a silicone grease in the boots. After you remove the coil, blow compressed air down the tube an dblow out any dirt, before removing the spark plug. Wires are/were never an item for a tune up, unless they were bad. Replace the fuel filter.
replace the air filter,pcv valve and spark plugs if over 60 k and the wires are original replace dist cap rotor and wires also then clean the throttle bore spotless with cab cleaner and a rag scan for any codes and sensors out of range there is no fuel filter (it is part of the fuel pump)
It may be time for a tune up, Replace the spark plugs, spark plug wires, replace the fuel filter, and clean out the throttle body and fuel injectors. If there is an Auto Zone around your area, you can go there and have them scan the car for any DTC codes that would indicate anything wrong with the engine that would cause the bad idle. If there is no code, then time for the tune up and mentioned. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions to tuning up your car free of charge too like the scan.
I'm assuming this truck has Power Steering. (my 2000 Dodge Dakota does) Because the power steering pump is causing a strain on the engine when you turn the steering wheel and it is also being strained by putting the truck in 4 wheel drive, A simple tune up might be in order. By tune up I mean spark plugs, spark plug wires, air cleaner, Distributor cap and rotor button. I would also check the timing on the engine and if possible change the fuel filter (The fuel filter is a real bear on this truck because it is in the fuel tank along with the fuel pump and sending unit)
