CURIOUS ABOUT THE APPROPRIATE COST OF AN OVERALL TUNE UP

2002 Isuzu Rodeo 77,000 miles. I am curious about the appropriate cost of an overall tune up that also includes a new timing belt, new drive belts, all new filters, flushing and replacing all fluids throughout the vehicle, fuel filter, adjustment of valves, and flushing the cooling system. This is supposed to be a very thorough preventative maintenance procedure. Is it a good idea at 77,000 miles and what would you consider a fair price?
What you are asking for is a "major" tune-up, not an "overhaul".
Yes, this is a good idea. We would also replace the radiator hoses. The valves do not require adjustment; they are self adjusting. The price for parts and labor for all items you mentioned vary. The dealer is usually the most expensive.

Wouldn't reccomend flushing the tranny though! Just a drain and fill.
