First off can you give me exact year and model of the vehicle? It sounds like can be IAC or TPS. Also may need tuneup and a good intake cleaning. I prefer amsoil engine foam. The stuff is awesome and should be done before changing the oil. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

How much will a tuneup for a 2004 buick La Sabra

Generally speaking, modern cars do not require "tune-ups" like older cars. There are regular maintenance tasks and wearable components that need to be replaced, but the costs vary wildly depending on the shop and the brand of parts they use. Oil change, air and fuel filters, and, every 10k miles or so, spark plugs and wires are about all that needs done unless indicated. Also, coolant change, which I do annually on all cars I own.

Engine run realy rough /1999 gmc jimmy

First ask yourself how long ago did I do a tuneup ,change the fuel filter, change the oil filter, and service the transmission, you do know with a bad VSS vehicle speed sensor in the transmission your auto will Not run correctly, If all of this has no recent recall complete all service and dont forget your fuel filter all of this has to be done anyway. 90% chance all this will fix your problem and if the mileage is 150K+ and the fuel pump has not been changed add it to the list as well as well as the fuel pressure regulator. Yes, just a tune up. Remember all the parts i listed have a scheduled replacement date in regular dealer service at certain miles like 20k 30k 60k etc. Then when service is done and if the auto does still have the problem it can only be a couple things.Remember to rate my solution this is how i earn my achievements here on FixYa Thanks in advance

What tuneup services should I be getting done on my 1999 Acura TL 3.2? It has 138K miles on it and has not had a tuneup since 75K 4 years ago...

Geez! Honda kept all the mechanics out of work! Well, a MAJOR TUNE UP must be done in ur FiNE & TiME TESTED car! Replacing the BELTS including timing belt/tensioner should be done. Checking brakes and FLUSHiNG brake fluids. Checking the underchasis, bushings, wheel bearing, wheel alignment, tires and shock absorbers. Checking clutch master/slave and toping hydraulics and gear oil in the transmission for manual. Checking electrical and ECU! Change oil, spark plugs, hi-tension wire, fuel filter, and air filter! Check and top up/flush steering pump. Check and flush cooling system! Thats all! hope your car will last another 10 more years! Taah!

if you have no lisghts on and the gaint is running well.. all you need is usual replacements:
- Engine Oil
- If Transmission filter was not changed in 90K, you should do it
- Oil & air filters

- if you feel so delay in start or power loss: replace spark plugs
- Check fluid levels in:
+ brake oil
+ Power Steering Oil

Hi I have a 2001 Xterra, Manual, 213,000, runs rough at random

If your mechanic changed the spark plugs. Make sure he did a few things.

First make sure he used NGK plugs. I have seen other make plugs cause running conditions.

The other thing is make sure plug number 6 was changed. I can not tell you how many times I have seen shops leave that one cause it's to hard. That also can give you the ruff condition.

Last but not least, if the distributor cap and rotor and wires were not replaced, it may be possible that you could have a spark issue being loss. If you notice it more when conditions are wet, then it has to be related to those items.

Thanks Jay!

Regular maintenance

If you had the 30,000 mile maintenance done, nothing of any real importance, just oil change, tire rotation, check air filter, check all fluids, tire pressures, etc. 30-60-90 K miles are important.
