The owner of the car should be able perform engine tune-up . Prepare the tune up tools and materials . so that when tune-up is performed ,engine should be on peak performance and within specification.Use multi tester , Use timing light,use dwall meter ,use tachometer ,use feeler guage, adjust spark plug and contact point gaps. Adjust Idle speed and Idle mixture. Adjust tappet clearance,observe safety rules.If the owner of the car cant do the job done because of work then the owner of the car should go to a car mechanic and let them tune-up the engine.

Is there a description on how to do a tune up on a 2003 mazda tribute?

first step is to have the fault codes read. If there are no codes and the vehicle is performing well then there is no need for a tune up as the ECM is continually doing the job for you
in fact every second it is running it is being tuned
don't fix what ain't broke really does save money.

Compression issue on one valve. did a tune up - still low compression. suggestions on my next steps??

Low compression, or compression that "bleeds down" us usually indicative of a burned valve or a broken piston ring. Since this is a 1999 I'm going to assume there's a lot of miles on it. A simple tune up is not going to fix this. You're going to need to tear it down. This is definitely not DIY unless you're a mechanic.

While I was driving my mazda 6 2004 car, stalled, I replaced, thro body, still same and did the tune up

Why would you ever replace a throttle body ?

It is just a casting & a TPS Sensor

What would that do?

Who is doing that work on your car?
What is the real problem in some detail?

Hi i have a mazda 6 2003 i put a aem intake when i first got the carnow when i got to 70000 miles the check engin light turn on.i think it might be the intake or it can be that io havent done a tune up...

well, if you install any major performance product, you wil need to ensure that it meets or exceeds the OEM (original equipment manufacturer). you did not state what the milage was on it when you bought it, but i assume it has been ok for a while, the thing with aem intakes is that you need to ensure that you maintain it, heres an example

  • Step 1 Mix 2 tbsp. of dish soap and 4 cups of water in a small bucket. Remove the air filter from your vehicle's air box. Vacuum the air filter, removing the large dust deposits.
  • Step 2 Dip a cloth into the soapy water and gently scrub the filter. Make sure to scrub every inch to get as much dirt off as possible. Dunk or spray the filter with water to get all of the soap off of the filter. Repeat the process, then let the filter dry for two hours.
  • Step 3 Dab the other cloth in the filter oil. Gently massage the oil into the air filter to moisturize the filter fibers. This will prevent the filter from becoming brittle and breaking. Once the entire filter is moisturized, let it stand for one hour.
  • Step 4 Reinstall the air filter into your vehicle, making sure you connect it tightly and properly. The tighter the connection, the better. This will prevent air from escaping and dust from collecting on the inside of the filter.

  • If the air filter is clogged, or showing very little oxygen content going into the engine, the code will be thrown up by the intake air sensor...

    i would also suggest a good once over, anbd tune to ensure the mazda keeps powering on

    Personally, I'd have it "tuned up" once or twice a year. It also depends on what you would call a "tune up"
