Change all fluids, new plugs & plug wires, SeaFoam it, rotate the tires, make sure they are properly inflated, new air filter, fuel filter, a good detail inside & out. All would be a good start.

Look at whatever auto parts store you have in the area. They will have the parts you are looking for at about the same price or better than anything online (after you factor in shipping). I use Advance Auto Parts a lot. AutoZone is good too. Occasionally NAPA has something to offer. Just shop around first.
