How do you give a tune up


A normal tune up is plugs/wires/cap/rotor and fuel filter. If you have a DIS (distributorless ignition system) change plugs,wires,fuel filter. You can also change oil and air filter.

2001 f150 idles up and down, and missing?


This may be something relatively simple. There are a few things that can affect the way your engine runs. When was your last tune up? If it has been a while, i would bet that you probably need to do plugs, wires, cap, rotor and PCV valve. That fixes problems with missing most of the time. Also, your idle air control valve could be sticking, which affects the way the idle acts, and can make it feel as though the engine is missing. Other items of interest would be your MAF sensor, and fuel filter. These can also affect your idle. I'm leaning toward the tune up myself, but look into these things and let me know what you find. I'll do my best to help you troubleshoot and solve this problem. Good luck.

Hyundai sonata 2003 v6 what do i need for a tune up.


A tune up is generic. i don'y have specific part numbers or anything, but a tune-up generally consists of:
Spark Plug replacement (6 of them)
Spark Plug Wire replacement (6 of them)
Fuel filter replacement
Air filter replacement
On older vehicle, one would check all the components that involve spark, such as distributor cap & rotor. You might not have these, yours may be computerized, no service required until it fails.
A tune up would also include a review of all recommended service items as noted in your owners manual. Some of these might be mileage related. Such as, timing belt & transmission fluid replacement.
I normally do not do tune-up's unless the vehicle is having a problem. If you end up taking your vehicle to a mechanic to diagnose a problem, he will suggest many of these items before beginning his diagnosis.

Want to know what I can do to tune up my grand am


About all you can do is change plugs and wires, and they don't do much more than that. What converter are they talking about?

I want todo a tune up myself


for a normal tune up, the only thing you can change are, fuel filter, oil filter and oil, cabin filters, transmission oil filter and trans oil, and spark plugs. The other (tune items) such as spark plug wires and points, and timing settings are either eliminated or non adjustable. If you have the equipment you can do a computer check, but if the truck is running well it probably won't tell you much.
