Default Tune Up

Hello Everyone, so i bought my MAX at 98000 miles and i want to do a full tune up just to be on the safe side

Spark Plugs
Wires
Cap and rotor
etc etc

How hard is this to do bymyself, any tips or safety precautions and should i be looking at any other things maybe drain and fill the transmission. I currently have no issues at all, but i take care of my cars like a lil fat kid wit a twinkie under his pillow (ya heard)!

LOL They haven't made caps, rotors or wires for over 10 years bro lol. Now they have coils over our spark plugs, but you don't replace those unless they go bad.

Replace spark plugs, clean your IM and injectors.

I hope your mechanic knows you have to remove the upper intake monifold to get to the rear spark plugs lol

You might wanna have to give him a copy before he works on it to give you a better idea of price. My mechanic that always give me discounts would do it for $200 or less. Double check before you go on
