First off, I've had this car for almost 3 years. Owned since 122k now has 151k. I've replaced battery,fuel filter,coolant elbows,recent coolant flush, dropped the pan in the tranny, new gasket and new fluid new cat a few years ago. At my recent oil change they said my water pump was leaking. Have yet to see signs of that. With the high mileage I'm sure I need one, but other then my recent fuel leak, that's fixed BTW, I've never had a problem, never been stranded and starts up every time... I'm thinking plugs n wires but what else?

Thanks!!

I would Seafoam the whole car, clean the TB, then change the wires and plugs. And if needed change the air filter. Maybe flush the brake fluid if needed.
And as always, change the air in the tires from summer to winter air. Laughing

With 150k on the clock, I would probably do a brake fluid and PS fluid flush.

How long ago did you do the fuel filter and trans filter? I do both of those every 30k.

Here is this too...
