If they haven't been done yet, you'll probably have to replace the coil packs in the near future. Might as well do all 6 + spark plugs while you're at it, it's not the worst job in the world but some of the lines over the rear cylinder head get brittle after so many heat cycles. Check the service history to confirm if the trans & diff have been serviced. Watch for a leaky coolant expansion tank, Taliaferro sells an aluminum one.

You should consider changing all the XWD fluids. Chances are they have never been changed since there were no factory change intervals specified. It's the feeling that they should be changed every 30k mi.
