View Full Version : Tune up question

10-10-2005, 07:03 AM
I'll be getting a tune up next oil change. Just want to know if I should get a full complete tune up, such as transmission, coolant fluids, belts, etc. or should I go w/ the simpler way with spark plugs, oil and air filters and such. oh, and I have 2000 g-am, 43,000 miles and never have gotten a tune up yet.

You shouldnt need one.
Transmision flush
Coolant flush
new air filter
new belt wouldnt hurt
That about all i would do at 43,000

No fuel filter, O2 sensor stuff?

Depending on how much u know about cars u can do all that your self for a lot less.

- fuel filter: $10
- coolant: $45
- air filter: $12 (drop in)
- tranny: $20 - $30 (pan drop and filter change)
- oil: $10 (standard oil and filter)

instead of paying a shop over $100
