    Default cost of full tune up

    Alright so I bought my 02 Elantra not to long ago and I'd say its averaging pretty bad gas mileage but with close to 107,000 miles on it I think the best bet would be to do a complete tune up including o2 sensors. Anyone have any idea how much that would cost from a place like Express tire? I'm thinking a complete tune up would probably be the best bet before I get intake and my other upgrades. I tend to get a gas smell in my car under moderate to heavy acceleration.

    do you know if the timing belt was done? with that mileage I would say plugs,wires,air filter, and maybe fuel filter have it scanned to see if there are any old codes. but thats just my 2 cents im sure some one might have some better ideas.

    I say do the coolent aswell, Is it automatic? Replace the automatic tranmission fluid, If its auto replace aswell. Since its second hand car, you dont know what was done to it. Just do everything, and if possible try to do it yourself. Save alot of money...

    So oil, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs fuel filter and check if any pipes are worn out etc. Its pretty cheap...

    I believe on the carfax the timing belt had been replaced but no problem in doing it again
