Question about Hyundai Elantra
Tune up is usually pretty easy, especially today with electronic ignition and automatic timing control. Aside from the Air Filter needing changed you should change your oil and filter every 3000 miles although some will go up to 7000 miles between changes. You need a spark plug socket to change your plugs with and if you plugs are set deep like they are on some 4 cylinder engines you'll need extensions to reach them. When you remove the spark plug wires remove them one at a time and replace the plug then put it back on and move to the next one. Make sure you feel the clamp in the wire boot end that goes over the plug click into place. Also, when you are removing the wires make sure you only pull on the boot end and not the wire itself. If you accidentally pull the wire apart from the boot buy a replacement set of wires and replace them all, again do this one at a time so you don't mix up the firing order. You'll most likely need an oil filter wrench to take the old filter off but when you put the new one in place tighten it down hand tight then give it a quarter turn to seal it up correctly. The whole job should take you roughly an hour to do the oil change, plug change and air filter change. When you change the oil it will take roughly 5 quarts of oil if you change the filter with it. I know some do oil drain and change only then the next change they change the filter, personally I do not recommend this but it is a choice you will have to make since it is your vehicle. When you change the plugs aside from the spark plug socket you will need a gap tool to verify your plug gap, If you get your plugs at Auto Zone or another Auto parts store they can tell you the proper gap for the plugs.
