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

What is the cause of a 2001 ford windstar 3.8 motor coolant leak above thermostat?

Just had this problem my self. I have a 2002 Ford Windstar LX. I was leaking engine coolant. Took it to the repair shop. Come to find out Ford in their infinite wisdom has place a coolant line that runs underneath the intake manifold. It is called a Coolant Bypass Line. Needless to say it cost 450.00 to repair including parts and labor. Per the mechanic Ford has a repair kit that you can buy but has not issued a recall even though it is a known problem. Good luck I have read you can do it on your own but is a pain in the but.
