what should a tune up for a 2003 mustang include?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We are an elderly couple.  We have a 2003 Mustang convertible. My husband
is unable to advise me about scheduling any maintenance.  The car has not
been to the shop for anything in 3 years.  It mostly sits in the garage.  I know
nothing about cars but I know this one needs a tune up or something.  The car
runs fine but we rarely drive it..

If it has been sitting definitely have the fluids changed out. Oil, coolant, fuel, transmission if the mileage is over 50K. Also check the filters. Have a local shop look it over for you and advise you on repairs.

A tuneup on a Triton V8 would be just spark plugs unless a coil or coils are bad. An entire set of new coils can be bought for well under $100 on Amazon. Plugs will be around $10 each because they should be double platinum. Like Tom suggests there are other maintenance items to consider.
