    Can't advise on cost,but if it hasn't been done previously,you definitely need new spark plugs.The front three are very easy to-the rear three require a bit of disassembly.
    I just went through a probelm with mine where the car ran smooth except with ac on and when I first started the car.The problem was a bad coil.
