    Default Tune Up Cost

    How much would it cost me for a tune up, including oil and filter change, all honda parts, nowadays? Just lookin at ballpark figure.

    I have a 2000 Honda CRV EX.

    Thanks.

    That is a vague question. Plugs, distributor cap, wires, and a bottle of real Techron fuel system cleaner is about all you really need on a tune-up. 30 minutes and you are done. Use original equipment plugs, cap and wires - remember, they were made to last 100k+ miles to start with and other forum members have posted bad results about non-original plugs and wires.

    That is a really hard question to answer because prices vary wildly within the U.S. from region to region. It also varies depending on who does it (ie. Dealer vs Independent Mechanic vs Uncle Joe vs. You). But especially since you live in Portugal you are really narrowing down how many people can answer it. Also, how many miles do you have and are you needing the timing belt/water pump as well? I promise I am not trying to be mean and just trying to express how difficult it is for many of us to help you with this question.

    A type 4 service maintenance would be consider a tuneup done by the dealer. For roughly $375 CDN for 2000CRV parts, labour tax included which is 15% here in my area. This is should be done at 48k, 96k,144k,192k (kilometres).

    Front rear brake service, tuneup, valve adjustment, tire rotation/pressure, Inspect exhaust, steering and suspension, Inspect cooling and heating, Oil and filter change, Spark plug, trans fluid change, air filter.

    Check your manual and see what needs to be done. Again as Robert said depends how many miles/kilo you got. timing belt/water pump needs to be change at 166k km.

    And if the mileage isn't too high, save your money on the ignition wires. What's the mileage, anyhow?

    Default Re: Tune Up Cost

    1. Oil filter .5.00 average price
    2. Oil 5w20 average 2.50 high milage 30 cents more 5 needed (4 1/3 added)
    3. spark plugs average 2.50 4 are needed NJK plugs Honda uses, and any aftermarket store carries these.
    4 seige compound about 99 cents
    5 electronic connection grease 99 cents
    6 Spark plug gapping tool from 99 cents to 10.00
    at an aftermarket store can cost around 25.00 max.
    at HG Honda can cost 50.00- 75.00 maximum

    socket, extention, and rachet are the tools required aftermarket if stores have coupons sometimes are free after a 10.00 purchase. Oil wrend can cost about 20.00 for an excellent one HG honda of course.

    Now we have what you asked for we can now get started
    the year of the car is a 2000 cr-v at an average person driving 12-15k per year its 2006 of april the car has 60k through 120k on it. as you're the orginal owner you would have kept a severe or average driving record. so we must concider you are a severe driver.

    Any ideas on how to test the distributor cap and rotor cap? I think I'm on the orgininal wires and the resistance is within specs (less the 20k on the mutlimeter). I'm certain the cap and rotor are original as well. I inspected the cap inside and out and it seems clean, no major wear on the connection points. My V has 101k mile on it.
