Not ??


Make/ Model? Driving conditions? etc.... not an easy as yes or no? Also, what do you consider a "tuneup?"

If you take your car to a shop asking for a "Tune-up" you're gonna get raped.

What is a tune up?

I recommend getting the oil changed every 3-5k miles.

all depends on the vehicle.. but normally I do the tuneups between 60-80k. I normally just do belts and plugs.

My local mechanic will do it for about $350, but if you don't know the guys I bet they'll rape you for $800 or so

Never. I drive a POS for that reason. When it shits the bed, I buy another POS.

Look at your car's manual

As a general rule I replace my air filter once every year or 20K miles (although I have a permanent one now so I just need to clean it)

Spark plugs and spark plug wires can wait almost 100K miles

Oil changes depend on your car and type of oil

It was a shitty little Mazda 626 I bought myself when I was 18. When I was going to get a new vehicle I seriously considered bringing it to a field somewhere and blowing it up

I agree. Now that I have a new vehicle I will probably stick to doing it between 5-6k.

If you use conventional go 5k. If synthetic go it to 10k, but I usually go about 8k.

I had aimsoil synthetic in once and went 10k, and the oil still looked good when it came out.
