    When it comes to your vehicle, you want it to run at its best. By following your scheduled maintenance checks, you can save valuable time and money. Not only that, you can save yourself time and future problems. Here is a list of things you need to check on your vehicle to keep it running at a high performance. Every 3,000-5,000 miles, you need to change your oil and filter. Every 7,500 miles, you want to check your coolant level and your transmission fluid level. You also need to inspect your tires as well. Make sure they have correct pressure and they are not wearing unevenly. If they are, your vehicle may need an allignment. You also need to check your battery terminals and make sure they are cleaned, as well as the battery post. Every 15,000-20,000 miles, you want to inspect your brake system. Check your brake pads and your brake fluid. Every 30,000 miles, you need to lubricate the steering balljoints and suspension. You need to replace the air filter. You need to change your transmission fluid also. You also need to inspect all your coolant hoses and your engine hoses for damage. Also, make sure none of your hoses are loose. This is also a good time to check your pcv valve and replace it if it is bad. Every 60,000 miles, you will need to change your drivebelts. Replace your fuel filter and replace your spark plugs and wires. If you have a distributor, change your distributor cap. You will also need to change your coolant fluid. Every 100,000 miles, if possible, you will want to change your timing belt or timing chain. This is a costly repair but if your timing belt or chain breaks, you will not be able to start the car back and it may cause engine damage. When you have an older vehicle, you probably want to check everything you can before you drive it. It is always best to go ahead and change everything you can, especially all the fluids. Always scan the engine for leaking fluids. If you see fluid, find the leak. Make sure you don't drive it until the problem is solved. Driving a vehicle when it is damaged can lead to major problems. Make sure you always keep an eye on your drivebelts also. If it is possible, make sure you keep tools in your vehicle and extra parts. It is always wise to carry an extra drivebelt just in case the other one breaks. By doing this, if your vehicle breaks down, you will have a better chance of not being stranded. It is very important to change parts and fluids at their scheduled time. Many vehicles that break down can be prevented, but not all of them. But, many that do, could have been prevented by doing scheduled maintenace on the vehicle. As always, I thank you for reading and best wishes. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Tune up

You need to study or research info on tune-ups
Basically it is a sales pitch, as only spark plugs are left
& tune-ups stopped 25 years ago from a technical perspective
Your not actually tuning anything
You replacing old spark plugs,gas & air filter etc,that has been

The RPM's fluctuate after the car warms up. I think I need a tune-up.

The maintenance tune ups, for most of the cars, are scheduled at 30K, 60K , 90K miles. If you are late on the scheduled maintenance tune up, of course your car needs it, but to find the problem you need a "Check and Advice", only at Volvo dealer. It cost $65 to $100, on the top of tune up cost.

I got a 1988 GMC Jimmy it needs a tune up and has

Wow, tough decision,
You need to determine why the over heating,are you losing coolant,if you are it could be anything from a radiator to water pump on the famous 4.3 intake leaking,if your not losing coolant,well it could be thermostat,head gasket,cooling fans .
And you didn't say why the tune up was needed,if its missing or a if the over heating and the tune up problem are related,But a good tune up just in parts will run $125.00
might be time to pack it's bags!

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!
