There's nothing more important than regular maintenance to keep your car out of the repair shop. It may seem like a waste of time to constantly perform maintenance tasks on your car, but the money you save by keeping your car's systems operating well is worth the effort. Regular maintenance is more than changing oil, and there are different maintenance tasks for different seasons. Be sure you're up to speed and up to date:
* Seasonal Maintenance Checklists
* Brake Pad Replacement
* Replace Your Air Filter
* Fuel Filter Replacement
* Change Your Oil
* Spark Plug Replacement
* Battery Maintenance
* Windshield Wiper Replacement
* Wheel Lug/Bolt Check
* Fresh Air Vent Cleaning
* Radiator Flush
* ABS Sensor Cleaning

Prices vary greatly depending on the cost of labor in your area and what work is being done. According to the New York State Attorney General's Auto Repair Tips, the old kind of "tune-up" which were more typical for cars before 1980 usually aren't required in modern cars.

Typical costs:
* For a basic "tune-up," we've seen rates as low as $30-$50 in places where the cost of living is low, to as much as $100 or more in expensive areas where more is included in the tune-up.
* Most places will charge you for parts and labor separately. Often tune-up parts like spark plugs, air filters and fuel filters will run $20-$60. We've seen hourly labor quotes from $40 an hour, to over $110-$150 an hour at BMW and Mercedes dealerships in urban areas (i.e.).
* Dealer 30k, 60k or 90k mile tune-ups can run from $250 for 3-4 hours of labor and basic maintenance, to over $1,000 at places with high labor costs and additional maintenance services, such as timing belt replacement.

Additional costs:
* If the mechanic identifies needed repairs, this can add a significant amount to your total.

* Small auto repair shops and gas stations will often advertise specials on tune-ups in newspapers and coupon books.

Shopping for a tune-up:
* If you've lost your owner's manual, which typically specifies your car's maintenance schedule, you can usually find instructions for ordering a replacement at the manufacturer's web site.
* Check in this link your Ford-Ranger-Owners-Manual (page 256 and next).

I hope helps with this.

    There are two types of tune-up taking place at present called minor tune-up and called tune-up more.
    the tune-up only minor change air filters gas, checked the exhaust
    gases and an adjustment of throttle or throttle body, this service is
    performed every 30,000 miles or 45,000 km.

    is replaced, this tune-up is done every 100,000 miles or 160,000 km (estimated value above $ 600)
