I strongly suggest that you get the maintenance manual if you are going to keep it. It is published by Robert Bentley publishers and it is a bible for these cars. If you haven't done it yet, I might suggest doing a full tune up including changing the fuel filter (depending on the manufacture date it might have two) and they are located by the right rear tire. After that, remove the plastic covers over the coiks/spark plugs and look for oil in there. If it collects and reaches a certain level it can damage the ignition coils (this car has eight of them!).
Good Luck!
