Ole4Cyli Got the recommendation sheet from them. Replacing plugs/wires/cap/rotor would be $71.49, $104.25 for labor. I'll just find a youtube video on how to do it myself. Thanks guys!

Plowboy1970 I did cap rotor wires and plugs on my 4 cylinder for under $50 and it took me an hour. Only because one of the cap screws broke off and I had to pull the distributor to drill out the bolt. If you can clean the IAC you can do your plugs.

If you can do that you can change the plugs & thermostat no problem. Just make sure to check the gap on the new plugs before you install them & make sure the washers are installed correctly & do them one at a time so you don't mix up the wires. Also if you're doing the thermostat go ahead & get new radiator hoses, it wouldn't hurt to change those out too since you have to take one of them off anyway.
If you were a bit closer I'd come & give you a hand.

Your opinion?

So I brought my 98' to the shop this morning to see what was causing my rough start problems, and I called them back after school. They told me it ran pretty much perfectly, but it could use tune up on plugs and wires. They also said that the thermostat on the engine needs to be replaced. In total, they want to charge me $300. Too much? Or sound right?
