Guys,

its time to tune up my car, im almost at 180,000 miles. i usually do a regular maintenance such as oil change, brakes pad change, and brake fluid flush and thats it. i havent done a tuneup...like changing the spark plugs, hose e.t.c in years. when i start my car in the morning to warm it up, it dies after 5 mins, then i have to restart it again. i was told i need a tune up/ complete maintenance. what does a complete tune up/maintenance consist of? thanks

if you have the owners manual it tells you

but..

spark plugs
air filter
trans service
check vacuum hoses
check suspension bushings
check sealing system (valve cover gasket ) etc
check cooling system
FLUSH cooling system
inspect brake fluid
flush and refill brake fluid
check for software updates (if necessary reprogram engine ecu )
