Not really, the only difficulty is going to be if it is a v6. As you will need to remove the intake manifold, throttle body, hoses and electrical connectors (and anything else in the way).

For a full tune-up you will want to change the following:
-spark plugs -spark plug wires -air filter -oil/filter -fuel filter -pcv valve -any cracked hoses (vacuum/coolant/fuel) -serpentine belt (if cracked/worn even the slightest)

You may also consider the following:
-transmission filter/fluid change -radiator flush/drain and refill

You will need some or all of the following:
-basic hand tools (sockets, screwdriver, wrenches, pliers, etc) -breaker bar/ belt tensioner tool (for belt) -spark plug socket -manual (for reference), especially if you have a v6 -jack (for tranny filter change) -scraper (for tranny filter change) -radiator flush kit

How do you do a tune up on a 2004 Alero


What motor? a 2.2 will have the spark plugs under the cover in the center of the valve cover. About all you can do is replace the spark plugs. A 3.4 should be self explanatory. Follow the wires to the spark plugs located near the exhaust manifolds. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
