93 Taurus SW - what to fix next?

Subject is a 93 Taurus SW, owner since new, with 106,000, runs well.
What should I expect to fix next? I try to do preventive maintenance I can schedule for warmer days. Working on a cold concrete floor, in cold weather
on a cold car is getting tough for a 60 year old.
Regards, Bill

Bill, you have done a pretty good job. The battery will probably get you in the not so distant future. they seem to last only 3 or 4 years anymore.
Replace the fuel filter if you have not.
Be on the look out for the cruise control dropping out or erratic trannie shifts. Typical VSS failure symptoms.
Keep an eye for loss of coolant. If its a 3.8, it could be signs of head gasket. Otherwise, the plastic tanks and seams on the radiators seem to micro crack and leak or leak at the seams.
Look real close at the small vacuum hoses on the front and the back of the motor. If you look real close, you will probably find some severely cracked and leaking in need of replacement.
Keep a close eye on the donut motor mounts. They break open and leak and cause the motor to flop around some.
If you never have had your TFI ignition module replaced, you might want to keep a spare along with the special little tool to remove the screws.
Open your hood at night with the motor running and look for arcing on the plug wires. if you see any sparking, replace them.
My 93 has 160K+ on it and still going strong. The rack has a few issues, but still operational.

I've got a '95 wagon (LX) and the cruise control doesn't work. How do you check if it's the VSS and how do I replace it?
