Been driving the s10 daily for about a month now.. Runs great(knocks on wood), no issues out of it. I recently changed the oil and filter, and fuel filter. Truck has 166,xxx miles on it. Has a new radiator, ac compressor, condenser etc. I dont know when the last time the plugs/wires or any basic tune up stuff was changed. Im getting 19MPG out of it.. 2000 S10 2.2 Non-Flex/Automatic

Did a search on what brand products to use just to see what works best..

Ac delco plug wires P/N 9764T
Ac delco plugs.. (should i get the Professional Platinum P/N 41-948 | or the Rapid fire platinum P/N 12)
Wix Air filter P/N 46117



Any other items i should take care of while doing the tune up?

Re read lol.. recently changed it.

Main thing im wanting to know is which of those two plugs to go with.. I see everyone say delco, and i saw one guy say he runs rapid fire #12's..
Some people here will only use Delco, I run the NGK platinum's and they work great. Stay away from Bosch's and 'designer' plugs like the Splitfire, etc

Use the platinum. I've always ran them in my 2.2's.

19mpg isn't too bad. But not good.

My 2000 noma; with 20's, bagged, stock drivetrain and pretty stock underhood gets 16-18 city. It sucks, but it runs really good, and nothing is wrong with it. My window sticker says 19mpg city. 25 hwy. I've never seen either.

I've always ran AC Professional Platinums in mine. Went through about 3 sets now at 87k miles, but only because I tune it up every few years. Never had one foul and its always ran great with them. These 2.2's don't like a lot of other plugs. Definitely get some new wires, because if it still has the stock packard's, they are nothing to write home about and fail pretty easily. I always buy AC Delco wires too. Have a look at the valve cover gasket to make sure its not leaky, they tend to get that way on 2.2's with high mileage. Since you changed the fuel filter already, I think your g2g otherwise. These things don't ask for a lot really.
