Plugs,oil change,air filter,Fuel filter,pollen filter and a general check out. Basically a 30K service. Also have them clean the throttle body.

A 30K is usually like 3 hours labor and I think like $400.00 total for the job but it depends on the shop.

The throttle body is mounted to the bottom of the intake manifold. If it is Non-turbo follow the hose from the Air box to the motor. It attaches to the throttle body.
