Get the tranny serviced. Flush the cooling system thoroughly and use
only distilled water with the antifreeze. It's got too many miles to
switch to full synthetic oil so don't waste your money. Don't use any
additives anywhere; if you spring a leak then get it fixed. Replace
the seals on the tranny and rear axle -before- they start leaking.
Lube the chassis. Replace the spacers on the rear springs if they are
worn or missing. Get your brakes checked and your lines purged. A 2wd
should get around 20 mpg depending on how much weight you have in it
and how you drive. If your mileage is poor then drive slower and less
aggressively. Use the specified plugs; super-duper plutonium plugs
won't make a bit of difference.
