I know this probably isnt the best place to ask the question but i cant post in anything goes.

What is needed for a complete tune up?

> new spark plugs
> sea foam
> new fuel filter

what else would be needed?

Im also trying to help out my crappy gas mileage.

Thank you mods

Sea foam? WTF?

Check your plug wires as well, make sure they are in good shape as well as your air cleaner. Also a good time to check all your hoses and belt for any deterioration or cracks.

Not sure what else there is you can really do other than an oil change. Tune ups are a lot more simple without distributer caps :D

This is what i have done so far.

Oil change with mobil 1 synthetic
Brand new K&N filter

This is sea foam

Wonderful stuff, I have been using it for years now. Good for driving summer mosquitoes away as well.

I do all three options fuel, vacuum line, oil (only close to a change).. Peps the car right up.. The first time deserves a video as you smoke out your hood...
