Re: TUNE UP

Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wires, Distributor Cap, Air Filter, Brake Fluid Check(most likely wont need) Tranny Fluid check(most likely wont need) Oil Change if needed, Fuel Filter, Put a Gas Tank cleaner and Oil Pan cleaner through your car. Intake Cleaner wouldnt be a bad idea either. It will clean out your manifold a bit and then you wont run into a problem where things start to get clogged and then you will have to drill out your mainfold. Trust me, pay the 5 bucks for cleaner and do it every once in a while..You can just take off the air filter where it attaches to the Throttle Body and while your car is on just spray it in right there. Not too much or your will stall your car. If it stalls it doesnt hurt it. Just restart it and spray less lol. Check your brake pads as well. Check your bushing on your suspension for cracks and also your brake hoses for cracks..they may not look cracked but move them around to really make sure. Try bouncing your car in the front and back to see if your shocks are still good. Thats about all i can think of right now. Oh and a really good oil cleaner is called MOA. This stuff does wonders. It comes in two containers. One to put in with your old oil and you let it run for like 15 mins and then there is one your put in with your new oil. It works really well. Hope this helps i bit.
