Make sure you do the timing belt... It should have been done at around 90,000 but if you have not done it make sure you do... if you dont and it breaks, you will cause alot of problems

your PCV is located on your valve cover and attached to your intake on the passenger side. the drivers side attaches to the upper intake. PCV is posative crankcase ventilation.

you don't have to change the chain, unless you have an overhead cam. If you have a 4.0L you may want to do this, but you don't have to do it on the 3.8L.

Pick up a maintenance schedule from the dealership, a Chilton's/Haynes manual, or your owners book.
