tune up.

So i have my car scheduled to go in for a tune up this Fri. What plug are recommended. I'm hearing too many stories about different plugs. Also besides COP, oil change and fuel filter what else is recommended to be serviced?

Check your belt, coolant, freon since its summer time, trans and rear end oils changed or checked

A lot of people recommend NGK Iridium 9 plugs. Make sure they take a good look at your power steering and brake fluids
