I want to know what to expect before the car blows up and catches fire.

Can anyone give me a suggestion on parts that need to be replaced and things that i need to do to be proactive?

I am a lazy POS but i am getting desperate.
early maintenance makes more of a difference in how long it lasts than anything you do now.

But, anyway, pick up a Chilton's manual, or drop by your dealer and get ALL of the scheduled maintenance done & hope for the best.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
