i must say ive been a member for about a month now and have had many answers answered by searching. I have searched to no luck so now I must ask.

A month ago i got my trep on the road after an accident my bosses sister got into and she didnt want to fix it so i bought it.

shes a 94 3.3l and had 120000 miles when i bought it now has 122500 on it and ive only had to do brakes and a rotor cus she let the breaks wear all the way down. My question is what should i do to it to keep her going to 200K miles (my goal). She gives me a trouble code of 21 and 33 so i know i should do the o2 sensors and the a/c ill worry about later. what else should I do to her to keep her runnin like a champ.

Also does anybody have recomendations on what to use for oil and filter. Ive always used mobil oil and fram filters on my other cars

The filters and the oil are both good brands. The 3.3's don't seem to mind the Autolite spark plugs, I think platinums are ok in the 3.3s. Also, you definitely want to get a K&N drop-in air filter. Check and replace the necessary belts, hoses, wires, fuses, and so on. Have the coolant, transmission fluid, engine oil, etc. flushed/drained and refilled. Don't bother wasting your money on fuel system cleaners in a bottle, they do not work, find a shop that provides MotorVac. This is where a machine is plugged into your car's fuel system and it sucks all the buildup out of your fuel system, and having as many miles as you do, there is plenty to clean. Also, have the CV boots checked to make sure they are damage free, obviously have the car completely checked for any leaks anywhere. Go get a 4-wheel alignment, have the struts checked for damage and replace obviously if neccesary. As you had already said, replace the brake pads/shoes, and the rotors/drums themselves if necessary. On a side note, when you have your transmission fluid flushed, please make sure it is specifically MOPAR brand transmission fluid. If you don't, it is highly likely your transmission will fail sooner than later.
