The price was just for new OEM/NGK plugs and wires. They didn't mention, and I didn't ask about cleaning the coils. I just did an oil change and recently replaced the front O2 sensor, and the air filter is fine so no need for those jobs. Not sure about cleaning up the IACV, TPS, or MAF, though I suppose I could figure out how to do those myself. I'm usually reluctant to bring my car in for service unless it looks like a big job.
I've read adc's writeup, as well as a few others that suggest jacking up the motor a bit, or removing various components to give yourself enough space to work. I have to be honest, it looks intimidating and open to the possibility that I totally screw it up.
I'll take closer look to see if it's worth my time, but if I do, any guidance for cleaning the ignition coils? I'm pretty clueless in that area.
