Get a spark plug socket for 3/8" ratchet and a 3/8" ratchet extension probably at least 3" to go with your 3/8" ratchet. The socket must match the size of your new spark plugs. Find them and replace them by removing the boot (rubber wire) on top of each plug. However many cylinders you have = how many spark plugs. Find them all. Put a little oil on the threads of the new ones so they don't sieze.
You tune-up your car by changing the spark plugs, wires and oil change. if you have a four cylinder car you will have four spark plugs. If you have six cylinder you will have six spark plugs. You need to make sure you use the correct spark plugs to replace the old ones. Check with your parts company to make sure you get the correct ones. You will also need a spark plug socket. Remember when you take the plugs off the spark plugs, if have to remember to put them back the same way they came off. If you don't it could make the car misfire.

1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 The #1 spark plug is the front spark plug on the drivers side and the cylinder location in order from front to back on the drivers side is 1-3-5-7 and on the passenger side it is 2-4-6-8. The ignition rotor rotation is clockwise.
If your Distributor cap is not numbered then replace the new wires, or transfer the old ones to the new distributor cap one wire at a time. Identify the #1 spark plug wire and start from there.
i'm guessing that your car is a 4-cylinder. this is common for inline 4-cylinder engines. since the spark plug holes usually go through the valve cover, the valve cover gasket will leak and collect in the spark plug holes. to fix this you will have to replace the valve cover gasket.
1) New spark plugs (make sure the gap is correct, ask the person at the parts store to check the gap on all 4 new plugs for you).
2) New distibutor cap and rotor.
3) New spark plug wires.(replace them one at a time so you dont get the wires location crossed up).
4) New air filter.
5) New fuel filter.
6) One bottle of STP fuel treatment (red bottle)
You will need a 5/8" spark plug socket and extension to replace the plugs. Look at their condition when you pull each one of the old ones out.
Do this job in the shade with a cold engine.
Do not be in a hurry!
I hope this helps you and your Honda!
