    How much should a full engine tune up run me?

    Need a tune up on my car...getting a little rough now

    Going tomorrow, how much should I expect to pay? Also, better to go to a well known spot (firestone autocare) or a small local shop?

    depends what you call a "tune up"

    What kind of car do you have? Prices range from like $100 for something that just needs 4 plugs...to over $500 for cars like the santa fe with the v6 because you have to remove the entire intake just to get to the plugs.

    As far as where to take it...personally, I'd go to a national chain simply because I know if I'm not happy they will fix it...the district manager/whatever is always just a phone call away. Unless of course you know someone or, for example, your dad has been taking his car to the same guy for 20 years, then obviously I'd go there.

    don't take it to the stealership. maybe a local mechanic, its not really hard all he is probably gonna do is:

    change oil
    refill wiper fluid
    check other fluids and fill (steering, brake etc)
    change sparkplugs and wires
    new air filter


    bout it

    Go to Autozone, they can test the Starter, Alt & battery while it is on the car.

    You also never answered what kind of car you drive. Generally a "complete tune up" on a fuel injected car is plugs, wires, Coil Packs, intake & exhaust O2 sensors. Be a good idea to drop a can of Sea Foam in your tank on your next fill up also.

    Honestly, if you can change a tire, you can do a tune up.
