I have a Buick LeSabre with 75000 miles on it. Lately it's begun to stall on me. I know the fuel filter needs to be changed, and my question is how much, ballpark, would a tune up cost and does changing the filter part of a tune up?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Heather, Before you have the fuel filter replace I would recommend you have a professional auto technician diagnose why your LeSabre is stalling. It could be part of the problem, but it could be something totally different. I'd hate to see you spend your money on the wrong fix.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Best bet is to talk to your mechanic and get an estimate. Sometimes the filter is included so just ask whatever questions you have.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Depending on exactly what is need for the tuneup, you are looking at a few hundred to do a tuneup. because of the age of the vehicle it may also need wires as well as spark plugs (they don't always come off so nice). Don't forget the pcv. Use acdelco plugs. If it is stalling, I would have a shop diagnose the vehicle before changing any parts. It may have an alternator putting out too much ac voltage or a faulty cam/crank sensor.
