Not much..about $6 to $11

A general tune up consists of plugs, wires, filters, fluids, sensor diagnostics etc. Just to ensure the car is tip top. If you got it from a dealer, should be fine. They are supposed to do that kinda thing.

Used lots and private sales....do a tune up

Wow, a lot less then what I though. Where could I pick one up? How easy, or should I say hard is it to install?

I hadn't thought about the dealership doing a tune up before. It is a new car dealer, primarily Pontiac. I could only imagine that they would do some kind of tune up diagnostics on a Certified Used Car before they let it leave the lot. But then again, I have found some problem areas that should have been included in a Certified Used Car inspection process.
