Hey i was wondering what goes into a full tune up on a 91 toyota pick-up 4x4 V6. I wanna do what i can to save me money from taking it to a shop if i can do parts of it, or atleast give them the parts to make it as cheap as possible.

thanks.

Spark plugs also,maybe wires. Might need timing belt if you have high mileage.There is a list you can find that tells you what you need at each mileage point.

She has 190k on her. But the engine was rebuilt at 100k. 3.0 head gasket recall. I just bought her a couple months ago and the wires and cap are new i believe.

Wheres teh list at duct tape?

At 190k you are due for timing belt again especially if rebuilt at 100k. Also with that mileage you should focus on the chassis as well. Bushings and suspension are probably near its end of functionality. I don’t know the grease points on that year.

And Yes, plugs are wires.

You should be good to go after that for another 100k, save for routine fluids.

When a tune-up is mentioned, a lot of people think of an engine tune-up. When I worked as a mechanic, the things we would replace in a tune-up were:
plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter, PCV valve, air filter... these were the most common.
Sometimes we would do other things at the customers request, which include things that George already mentioned up there like belts, Coolant flush, grease fittings, service brake and power steering fluid... Then as he also mentioned you can go as far as doing your bearings, flushing the rear diff., Its all really up to you, but I'd say that all these things pretty much cover everything you need to worry about.
