Got the owner's manual? It will have the tune-up intervals listed in the back. Some newer vehicles get their first tune-up at 100,000 miles. And then- You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

A "tune-up" would include:

  • Spark plugs
  • Spark plug wires (optional but recommended)
  • Fuel filter
  • Air filter
  • PCV valve
  • A thorough throttle body cleaning

A fuel system cleaning, either professionally done or aggressive DIY (ex. Seafoam directly into the induction system) should be a regular system maintenance service also.

See "Related Questions" below for more change oil, oil filter, plugs, wires . etc. getting the plugs may be difficult (the rear ones. ) what i do is i remove the windshield cowl and reach down from above. some people get them from underneath

The local dealership states $425.00. That included new wires, plugs, air & fuel filter.

you will need fuel filter, air filter spark plugs i prefer platinum plugs, wire set,oil and filter some wind stars have a fresh air filter on cowl

You will need to take off the old part and then replace it with the new. You can do this on your own or with the help of a mechanic.

Taurus and Sable have their own sized rims from 96 to 2001. Other Taurus rims and Tempo and Windstar rims will not fit.
