You need a workshop manual to do the job properly. There are different items to service depending on the mileage - for example, a small service would usually entail cleaning the air filter and checking the fluid levels - engine oil, radiator water, brake and clutch fluid etc. Then check the tyres for wear and make sure all lights work OK.
A medium service would be to clean the air filter, or fit new one depending on driving conditions - you need to change this filter more often in dusty conditions.
Also, drain engine oil and refill and change spark plugs. Check plug wiring for cracks or breaks and do all in minor (small) service.
A major service would include all the above, but you now need to change the oil filter, fuel filter and the air filter, if necessary (oil and fuel filters are necessary).
Also, remove wheels and check condition of brake linings, check tyres for wear caused by misalignment and check play on wheel bearings.
These checks are not specific to your vehicle, and is just an overall guide. Your workshop manual may specify other areas. If in doubt, see your dealer, they have all the experts on hand.
It might not have one. A fuel filter usually sits on the fuel line between the fuel tank and the carburettor. Check your oil level as well. Some engines have a low oil switch. If the oil level is too low, it will stop the engine.
First find out what type of oil your car requires. examples are 5W 20 or 5W 30, These are examples of weight usually the manufacture list it on the oil cap. Then determine the type reqular or synthetic. As for brand thats up to you. Then make sure you have the filter. There are some that are screw on canister and some are oil filters.you need to know the part you require. Now for the oil pan there are different drain plug sizes some are starting at 12mm 13mm 14mm ect.. know your size. All in a nut shell you open drain plug let oil drain out. Install the drain plug, then reove oil filter, install new oil filter. Fill the engine in the engine oil fill cover and add (I always use 4 as start) you oil start at 4 quarts. Start the engine idle for a few seconds. check the oil level by using the oil dipstick. add if necessary, and recheck for leaks.
write down the manufacture date the vin number

refit the air intake pipe and filter the cleaner will make the
engine run a bit rough you may have to wind it a bit to start
it it will clear itself after running for a short time be shaw to
refit any plugs or connectors and pipes
Just basically spark plugs and an air filter. The plugs don't need replacement until 100,000 miles. The fuel filter is located inside the fuel pump assembly in the gas tank and is not serviceable. It doesn't require a PCV valve and there are no adjustments available for the throttle body, idle or timing.

a complete tune up consists of new fuel filter, oil filter, oil, plugs, valve adjust, carb sync and plug wires(optional).. if there is no dipstick, there must be a sight glass on one side of the engine down low. on that model i believe the oil filter is underneath along with the drain plug. there should be (2) 17mm bolts, one for drain plug the other for filter.
10W-30W oil, at that many miles check the brakes, air filter, tire pressure and all fuid levels, also have it put on a rack and check for any serious oil leaks at engine, trans, and rear axle. do u have any service records? the plugs and fuel filter should have been changed by now.
