My car has been running like **** lately. It is all stock and has 35500 (hard) miles on it. I want to give it a really good tune up. can some one give me a list of everything I should replace. I know the owners manual has a list, but I wanna here from people who own the car. I want to replace things that might be causing my car to run poorly, since I plan on trying to get it on a dyno. By the way how much does a dyno cost?

Just to let you know, this has been covered a thousand times before on the forums... but for some reason the search isn't working for me right now, so here's a quick list that I can remember from last time:

All filters -- oil, air, fuel
Spark plugs
Fluid changes -- oil, tranny, coolant, brake, power steering
Cleaning of the manifold (someone may want to elaborate on this one)

Instead of just letting your transmission fluid drain, you might want to get it flushed. It gets out a lot more of the old fluid and contaminants and really helped my ATX. Also, use mobile one synthetic oil, sure it might not help with power but if you put hardmiles on a car it helps with wear and tear.
