Default 75K, and now what should i do?

I have a 97 SE, with 75K miles on it. About 12,000 miles ago I had to replace the plenum, upper intake. I have just went through a pretty bad winter, in the Northeast and Im looking to perform maintenance on the car before anything major happens again. Im not really sure what to look for at 75K miles with nothing major done except the upper intake problem I had. Assuming no other major or minor repairs, what should I be looking for? As far as wheel maintenance, and engine maintenance and I guess anything other that would be suggested. Any help is much appreciated! I notice the ride not as smooth as it used to be.

thanks for your help!

You may want to have the salt flushed out of the undercarriage of the car.

Follow your maintenance schedule that came with the car.

I belive I've done everything for my Bonny with over 100,000 miles. I've done coolant system flush, Spark Plugs and wires, air filter, and brakes. am I missing anything. O ya and oil change every 3,000 miles, I think the most I went over is like 150 miles.

PCV valve, fuel filter, and O2 sensor, position 1 (not the one behind the cat).

The PCV Valve is that something I can do myself, and how much would that cost. The O2 sensor I will be doing shortly, cause I'm getting 21 miles per gallon.
