Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.


A tune up consist of replacing the spark plugs.

There is no real secret to removing the upper intake manifold. You actually do not have to completely remove it. You only have to unbolt it and unplug the sensors plus disconnect the EGR to exhaust manifold tube to position the intake away from the rear plugs to gain access to them.

It's a little high. We charge $300 for a 6 cylinder tune up.
