2005 Toyota Corolla 82,000 miles

My car idle is low it's pass between 1 and 0. So every one says I need a tune up, but does a tune up come with a fuel pump change. And is it a do it yourself project to change the fuel pump and if not how much should I expect to pay for both the tune up and fuel pump?

The only tune up items are plugs, air and fuel filter.

Fuel pump is NOT a DIY project, and would only be needed if fuel pressure was low, as measured by a mechanical gauge.

Low idle can be caused by a sticking idle air control valve, or a possible clogged up exhaust.

I would have Toyota or trusted garage check it out.
