Hi All,
This is my first post.
Time to send my 2005 Elantra GLS for its 60k service.
Here is the breakdown of my local dealer's quote:

timing belt & drive belts $399.99
fuel injector svc $106.99 [why do I need this? Not mentioned in my Hyundai maintenance log book]
trans svc $84.99
coolant svc $74.99 [does it cost that much to flush the coolant?]
power steering flush $85.99 (if needed)
rotate & balance $39.99 [don't need it, comes with tire purchase]
air filter $13.12 [do it myself]
pcv valve $38.00 [pcv valve is cheap on I feel like doing this myself but am scared of breaking something]
throttle body svc $39.99 [what is this? Again, not mentioned in the maintenance log]
spark plugs & wires $125.00 [looks like a rip-off to me. Will buy spark plugs and try to change them myself]
clean, lube, adjust rear brakes $44.99
(same for front if needed)
a/c system check $41.25

My comments are in [...]
All advice/comments are welcome!
One question:
Is a spark plug cable = spark plug wire?
My Elantra is a 2.0 CVVT
Do I have to change my spark plug wires?
On a set of 4 spark plug wires cost any where from ~$30 to
~$40. Looks pricey to me for a bunch of wires...
Any brand recommendation is very welcome.

I live in the East Stroudsburg area in PA right next to NJ not far from I-80.
Will be very grateful for any recommendation for a good mechanic in the area who can do the job for somewhat less $$$!


This is to follow up my previous post. What are the tools that I need to
replace the spark plugs and the PCV valve?

I am really new this. I should be able to buy them at Sears right?

for the fuel injector service go to Wal-Mart (yes i know they are the devil but they do have some cheap stuff) it is 19.99 for the fuel cleaning service. I did it at 15,000 on my previous car and plan to do that interval on my new elantra. i figure it cant hurt and for 20 bucks it is worth it.
I noticed that last time I was there. You notice any difference before/after.
um, not really. I mean i did it to my impreza at 15,000 miles so I am sure the injectors,tb, etc were not too gunked up. I just figure it can't hurt to keep that stuff somewhat clean. Supposedly it is the same thing as the $50 and up ones found at all other repair shops and dealers. maybe some one can do it to their car that has a few more miles on it.
