Default Tune up cost?

I have a 2004 with the 3.5 engine, 4WD,, automatic, 180,000 miles. Anyone have an idea what a tuneup might cost? I tried asking the dealer and was told it would be around $700.00 or so. The guy told me the plugs and wires are expensive and it's a few man hours because of the plug location. I can't imagine it would be that high but what do I know.

A "tuneup" is one of the most undefined terms used for cars so you need to define which items are faulty and need replacing.

I forgot that a tune up on today's cars isn't the same as a tune up on cars with distributors, points, and condenser that I had years and years ago. I'm curious on what anyone has paid a dealer to replace plugs and wires and if the amount I was quoted is realistic.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a gasket surge tank, and how many coils are there? Thanks!

I would assume the gasket SBR711 is quoting is the plenum gasket. This should be replaced since the intake manifold needs to be removed to access the plugs in the rear.

Your Santa Fe would have (6) coils, although these should be replaced on an "as-needed" basis.

I'd suggest changing the plug wires at the same time as the plugs since it would be a real kick in the balls to have to take everything back down to get them done later.

I believe there are 3 coils(each coil handling two spark plugs). Could be wrong though, but that is how it is with a 2.7. $700 sounds a little high to me, I think the local Hyundai shop wanted around $500 when I did my own spark plugs on my 2.7. With your high mileage, you should really do the wires at the same time you do your plugs. If you use iridium plugs, they should last you the life of your car.

I think you're right John. I probably mixed it up with something else I do maintenance on.

If you're at 180K and the timing belt has been changed at 60 and 120, you'll be due again. Something to consider....

The 3.5 used in the Santa Fe and XG uses (3) ignition coil located at Bank 2,, then we have 3 spark plug that fire the 3 plugs at Bank 1.. waste spark system --> Use NGK Platinum as installed from factory, or upgrade to NGK IRIDIUM, they wont burn like Platinum, they'll last longer (100,000 mile common replacement call out)

The "gasket" is for the plenum to lower intake mating surface,, we have to remove the plenum to access the plugs and wires at Bank 1.
