What all does a tune up consist of. I don't have an owners manual and as far as I know my car has never had a tune up. I keep everything changed out and so on and so forth but is there anything extra I should know about?
When should the manual transaxle fluid me changed BTW?

Hey, I have a 2000 accord and the manual open to page 192, the maintenance section right now, They have a chart of how often you should do maintenance, theres alot here, and I dont have alot of time so ill take a closer look later
Heres a list of everything in here which I suppose the check at a tune up
-transmission fluid and system
-brake and cluch fluid and systems
-air cleaner element
-air conditioning system and filter
-drive and timing belts

hey dude you shoudl always try to keep you car up to speed on the basics..the guy before me gave a good list (nice).you can always check most of those things as often as you want...but you timing belt is probably most important..i think the OEM betls are to be changed every 90k. do not go past that!! it might be 80k. i think your feul filter and spark plugs are 30K...check you manual..if you don't have one for the car check on ebay..you can get the for about $5
Re: When should you get a tune up? 2001 Honda Accord (accordselux)
I'm hoping it had one at 30k. I bought it at 46k. I think I'll get one just to be on the safe side. The only thing I need is mostly spark plugs changed because I get oil changes and i'm not due for transmission flush until another 10k. But I could use one since i'm always driving. Thanks
