Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

Instructions things you'll need:

  • Fuel Filters
  • Car Parts
  • Spark Plugs
  • Car Manuals
  • Oil Filters
  • Phillips-head Screwdriver Sets
  • Distributor Caps
  • Air Filters
  • Spark Plug Gapping Tools
    • 1 Replace the fuel filter. If you have a fuel-injection system, regular cleaning isn't necessary unless the injectors are clogged.
    • 2 Change the spark plugs (unless they're platinum, in which case you have 30,000 more miles to go). Also examine the spark plug wires and replace as needed. A new set of high-quality wires is worth the cost. They may be permanently attached to the distributor cap, so it will have to be changed as well.
    • 3 Replace the distributor cap and rotor if your car has them (some newer models with distributorless ignition don't).
    • 4 Change the points and condenser if you have an older car (roughly 1978 or older) that doesn't feature electronic ignition. You'll actually want your points changed, or at least adjusted, every six months or so (if they're changed, check the ignition timing as well).
    • 5 Check the ignition timing and adjust as needed (rare for a car with electronic ignition--post-1980--and some cars don't allow this at all).
    • 6 Adjust the valves as needed (unless your car has hydraulic valves). Be sure to replace the valve-cover gasket as well, especially if you see oil on top of your engine.
    • 7 Check the belts. Replace if worn.
    • 8 Check the fluids under the hood and replenish as necessary. Change the oil and oil filter if it's been 3,000 miles since the last oil change.
    • 9 Replace the air filter, which should be changed between major services--every 15,000 miles--as well.
    • 10 Adjust the clutch, if you have a manual transmission (although some cars now sport self-adjusting clutches).
    • 11 Service the battery, adding distilled water (if required), cleaning terminals and cable ends.
    • 12 Replace the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. It can make your car run rough or stall if it gets clogged, and it's cheap and easy to replace.

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
called preventative maintenance for over 20 years
For the last 30 years the vehicles Computer does all the
engine tuning

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!
