How do You tune up your car?
Do you only have to change the spark plugs and the air filter or is there more to it then that?

change the oil and filter, change spark plugs if they are bad u can tell if they look all fouled up u can clean them if they arn't to bad. get a new filter if u need to or rinse it if u have reusable one. clean out car and give it a car wash clean out the engine compartment if u want. if u really want to do it and maybe if u need to, change the shocks, not the springs. put some fuel injector cleaner in your gas maybe, mainly make it look good.

Tune up is kind of vague...I usually invision a tune up as every 30K
1. Change all filters (oil of corse every 3K, Fuel, air, micofiber{a/c})
2. Spark Plugs (check wires)
3. Flush fluids (transmission, coolant, steering, etc.)
4. Lube the chasis (heh heh, i said lube)
5. Have a beer

-I'm sure I'm leaving out some stuff, but that should get you started.

Tune up is making sure everything is good and replacing worn out parts. Check for any leaks, change all your fluids and filters, check tires and shocks.
