"Tune ups" are not what they used to be like on the older model vehicles. Your manufacturer has set certain mileage points to perform the regular maintenance needed to maximize the life of your car and every manufacturer is different regarding what needs to be replaced when.

Tune Up_1 places that change oil

Spark plugs are due every 30,000 miles on some vehicles, and not until 100,000 miles on others. Fuel filters, air filters, cabin filter, and evap filters can all by part of a mileage tune up and this varies depending on the vehicle. So, a tune-up these days will depend on the mileage, or age, along with the make and model of vehicle. See your service manual or expert BRAKEmax associate for the service table and know what is due and when.
