basic do-it-yourself tuneup would consist of the following:

replace spark plugs replace distributor replace rotor replace distributor wires replace fuel filter replace air filter replace PCV valve change coolant change engine oil & filter change Transmission Fluid replace windshield wiper blades replace engine belts

NOTE: Would normally recommend changing water pump and timing belt, but it isn't worth the money to do this on an 1987 Accord unless it is in extremely good condition. You will spend around $850 to have this done by a dealer and it is not a job for a "Saturday Mechanic".
