Any advice would be awesome and thank you!
As with any used car with a few miles on it replace all fluids, especially the transmission. Exception are cars with much more than ~60K miles as flushing transmissions get increasingly risky if it were never done (dislodged sludge can trash the transmission). Run a does of technron through a tank or two of gas before changing the oil to ensure injectors etc get a cleaning.
