Please explain what you mean by tune up?? now to this old grease monkey that means fancy exhaust ,webber carb ,high lift cam and grind valves in ,polished ports ect ,so i assume you mean a service .Now this depends on the service as a service means different things to different mechanics ,now a dealer fitter will only change oil /plugs and filters as this is the most profitable for the dealer and the mechanic whos good with a pen for his bonus.But to an old fleet fitter like myself then a service is a lot more ,with a grease gun/oil can ,inspection and manual adjustment of rear brakes .Clean and grease the light bulbs ,in fact best part of a days work for one truck ,so please be more specific

Burning Oil


we check oil every other fuel fill up. on old cars, every fill up
did you run car 10,000 miles to a oil change? unstated.
1qt/3000 miles is perfectly OK.
so 10000 mles is 3.3 quarts burned and off the top of the dip stick
if you drive fast, it burns more, got a heavy foot, or load in back>?
if you had done it right, you'd have already learned YOUR engines
consumption rates, and learned to check when IT , needs checking
we do this on all engines. all machines.
all engines burn oil, the exception , a church car, new, and never driven, far, or fast or for 10000 miles to an oil change.

your mech, was right, he was thinking , you dont check oil?

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

Well you should have a tune up about every 30,000 miles or so and you should change at least spark plugs and spark plug wires,you can also change air filter if needed and fuel filter.

What do you call a tune up?


U are correct, a 'tune up' is not an oil change, although the oil certainly can be changed at the time of a tune up (every 3k miles or twice a year if u don't drive much, and always change the oil filter too). Cars differ, mostly older to newer as to what can and should be done for a tune up. A car from the 1960's would need more parts replaced more often than a new car today (example: electronic ignitions of newer cars eliminate ignition points replacement, and generally, replacement is not as often of other parts: example, spark plugs).
So, a tune up can include spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, and I would include fuel and air filters. There are exceptions to this too, making it more complicated to generalize what to replace, as wires and spark plugs can last 100k miles now, some vehicles don't have the traditional dist. cap and rotor to replace. Check your car owners manual for an idea of what to replace and how often. If u don't have the original owners manual, check the car manufacturers web site for info. Good luck with the tune up!
