What's a tune-up? How many miles do you have? The plugs last 100K miles and it shouldn't cost more than $100 to replace them.

I haven't even seen that sort of stuff since I was a kid and I'm 50, haha. Rotors, wires, cap, haha, doesn't exist, how about capacitor and points too?

You can certainly get the oil, trans, rear diff fluids, brake fluid changed probably $250 at a dealer. Plugs depend on which engine you have, the 4 cylinder has 4 plugs, the 6 cylinder as 12 plugs so it would cost more, figure $10/plug at the dealer and 1-2 hours labor. If your car has that high a mileage wher you need plugs, get the serpentine belts and tensioners changed also, probably $300.

"Tune up" according to factory consists of spark plugs, fuel, air and cabin filters only. ignition system is maintenance free. Two things -
I would not wait tiil 100K to replace the spark plugs ( i have seen them burned down to the nub at only 63K!) Also, "A" and "B" service reminders indicate an oil service @10K mile intervals, most insiders recommend an oil change every 7K miles regardless using Mobil 1 5w30 only. You can then reset your own service reminder on the dash via steering wheel menus.
