Default What to do?

Hey guys since I owned this car ( 2yrs now ) I haven't done really nothing besides a oil change ( myself ) and had many things replaced due to old owner ( shop )...Now I see everyone doing tune ups and things like that...I was thinking that on my next oil change I should change somethings, but don't know what to do.

So I'm asking you guys what should I do to my engine when I change my oil? I'm still very new but learning as going so don't be like put a new head gasket on cause I'm not now were near that good lol..

My car is a 2001 Se with no upgrades done to it, hoping to do get some sooner or later..

Without knowing what the shop may have done....plugs, wires, air filter, tranny fluid and filter to start with. Then, as you have time if it hasn't been done, upper and lower intake gaskets, and cleaning the throttle body while it'* off. Check the condition of vacuum lines, serpentine belt, and flush the cooling system. Head gaskets you aren't likely to have to worry about.
