I would flush and replace the brake fluid, that is something nobody does on schedule. Check the front knuckles for wear grooves from the brake pads and repair if needed. Give the throttle body and IAC a good cleaning.
I don't think the oil pump should be a problem for a long time so I wouldn't mess with that.
Well I replaced whatever you call the belt that's in there
I actually have tons a fluid for the trans and differentials. There's gunk like they tried to leak and sealed themselves back up, so I may even do new gaskets on them too.
My engine has it's quirks, I tried to replace the TPS but the tiny torx bolt kept stripping all bits and I couldn't get it out. My idle is a bit funny.
Here's actually everything I've done:
New cat/muffler and o2 sensors
New plugs, wires, dist cap, rotor button
New belt, idler pulleys
New radiator (x2, all aluminum in there now)
New water pump
I keep my throttle body clean
Oil and filter every 3-4k, I use conventional and a little lucas oil stabilizer
Air filter replaced as needed
So for a spring project I'm thinking new gaskets and fluid in the diffs, new fluid in my trans and transfer case, and flushing out my brake fluid and power steering fluid.
I may even get the urge to do some painting underneath since I'll be spending so much time under there.
